Within St Pancras Station, where once hung 5 Olympic rings, now hangs a giant game of Tetris.
At least that is what it looks like. In fact it’s art. Art that is just a copy of a game of Tetris, because that’s how art is done these days.
Officially, it’s called Chromolocomotion, and according to the blurb, it alludes to the station as a cathedral of industrial revolution.
Not sure how a Russian computer game based around maths alludes to Victorian engineering, but that’s why I am not an artist.
I am left wondering what Betjeman would have made of it.
SUPPORT THIS WEBSITE
This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.
It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.
Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.
