Near Waterloo Bridge, a collective of artists, engineers and designers known as Pirate Technics have created a site-specific installation. Rising 14m high, the tree-like structure doubles as a metaphor for what the Olympics represent. As the tree is wrapped in different patterned fabrics from around the world, it symbolically demonstrates the coming together of cultures.
The project was created for Southbank's Festival of the World and expresses Pirate Technics' belief in art that exists for just one point in time for one specific audience.
They also have another work: "burning art"
creating impressive and joyful installations that are burned as a fiery public spectacle.
