Alex Chinneck is known around the world for this series of physics-defying sculptures and art installations which have ranged from melting walls, levitating buildings, and upside down cars. Now, Chinneck has debuted the latest in his series of abstract sculptures at the Greenwich Peninsula in London! The new piece, titled “A Bullet from a Shooting Star”, continues the trend of his previous artwork by turning ordinary everyday objects into abstract art sculptures by presenting a completely upside-down full-size electrical pylon. Seeming defying gravity by standing on the tip of the structure, this engineering feat was accomplished by attaching the 15-ton sculpture to a large concrete counterweight, which weighs 120 tons and is buried 82 feet underground. This sculpture marks one of the largest and heaviest pieces Chinneck has ever debuted, and will be marking the landscape for local London residents for some time to come.
