A Photo a Day #62

Strolling along the streets of Soho on a windy February evening, I came across Julian Opie's new permanent art installation entitled 'Shaida Walking'. This double-sided LED animation captures the image of a girl walking at a quick pace towards Carnaby Street. 

Opie says of his piece:
'I wanted to draw people just the way they look walking down my street, any street...I found a public spot and placed the object on a plinth like a bronze statue of a civic hero to stride endlessly as a living drawing and as part of the crowd.'

    1. I'm really enjoying doing it! London is such a special place as a tourist. There's something interesting to photograph around every corner. Thanks for your comment x
