Hundreds and Thousands by Liz West

This event has ended

The Tide, Greenwich Peninsula
Enter Now

Greenwich Peninsula has commissioned artist Liz West to create Hundreds and Thousands for the Tide in 2021. The artwork wraps 700 m of the walkway’s glass balustrades, creating a ribbon of undulating colour. The installation contemplates the subtle nuances of light in this unique riverside location.

This work is part of an ongoing exploration of colour and scale, using The Tide as an evolving platform. Greenwich Peninsula is focussed on creating engaging transitional spaces and outdoor experiences for visitors and residential communities of the Peninsula.

Come along and see how the light refracts in the changing sunlight. It's definitely one for the 'gram.
