ICON sculpture outside the Royal Albert Hall – 23rd September only

 Following its successful launch and display at Royal Ascot this summer Sebastian Conran’s ICON sculpture can be seen outside the Royal Albert Hall for one day on the 23rd September.  It is there as part of the TEDx Albertopolis event – a half-day of talks on how technology, medicine and science exist alongside the arts in our modern society.

The sculpture, created from five tons of stainless steel and a Concorde nose, is a great celebration of how technology and art can be combined.  I must admit to missing the plane’s graceful lines – it used to regularly fly over where I once lived – and it is remarkable that this display also marks forty years since Concorde’s first non-stop flight across the Atlantic.
