The View Tube, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London

Sparked, The View Tube
July 2013 – Jan 2014

A Sparked Exhibition commissioned by The Legacy List, Ackroyd & Harvey have presented an insight into their History Trees artwork through drawing, photographs, mapping and a short film that explores their permanent art commission for the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Ten semi-mature trees marking specific locations and entrances are being installed over a three year period, starting in 2011 and scheduled to be completed this winter. Each tree is encircled by a large bespoke metal ring engraved with a history of the site within their canopy.
