Giant Sculpture At Wellcome Trust

Looks like King-Kong's been taking art classes. Bleigiessen, by Thomas Heatherwick, dangles from the roof of the Wellcome Trust headquarters on Euston Road. The numbers are staggering:

Height: 30 metres.

Wire used: 1 million metres

Glass beads: 150 000

Installation time: three months.

In fact, the sculpture is so large it can barely be photographed from one spot. We decided to get in a nearby glass lift and film it for you.
