Chord at Kingsway Tram Tunnel (1): the artwork

Chord is a huge art installation by Conrad Shawcross: two extraordinary machines with flower-like arrangements of spools. They move from the centre of their track towards the ends, weaving rope as they go. The dark tunnel, the gentle movement and subdued sound and colour make this a strangely hypnotic experience.

This event runs until 8 November, with hourly tours which must be pre-booked here. For more about the Kingsway Tram Subway, click here.

Sounds and looks wonderful. Would love to see it. Have never seen any of CS's installations, always catching up with his latest work too late. He's a fascinating, explorative and innovative artist.
