Description

Take my lightning but don't steal my thunder by Alex Chinneck stunning optical illusion that appears to make a building at one of London's busiest tourist districts hover in mid-air. To passers-by, it looks as though a section of the historic market building in Covent Garden has broken free from its foundations and is floating unaided, high above them. But in reality, the display, which imitates the architecture in the area, is a complicated piece of technical wizardry which took months to create.
