Artist and designer Ron Arad has set a floating aluminium blade in motion inside London’s St Pancras International station for his latest installation.
Suspended from wires, the metallic work slowly rotates and creates the illusion of fluid movement as visitors walk past the piece.
Arad said: ‘The rotation and the horizontal movement take turns in the viewers’ perception as the readings of the object alternate and the hypnotic effect is greater than the means.’
The site-specific installation hangs just under St Pancras International’s Grade I-listed Barlow Shed, part of civil engineer William Barlow’s original 19th-century design.
Tim Marlow, artistic director at the Royal Academy of Arts, added: ‘Thought of Train of Thought will reflect – in every sense of the word – on one of London’s great urban structures.’
Thought of Train of Thought will be on show until January 2017.
