It’s Friday (woohoo!) and my desktop wallpaper today definitely has that in mind. With the World Cup on, I’m sure many of us wish we could shutter the shop for a few days and crowd round the telly with a few beers. So I hope this wallpaper helps you pretend, just for a little while, that you’ve been able to do exactly that, and I’ll be back on Monday with a new theme for a new week of daily desktop wallpaper.Be the first to leave a comment »
The Chain Link Arches were a public art installation beneath Brunel’s impressive viaduct across the River Rhondda in Pontypridd in 2010. Consisting of coloured floodlights that lit up the underside of the arches as dusk turned to night, they made a somewhat eerie sight.
Although I can’t find any reference to it online, and unfortunately RCT’s own website doesn’t leave old news articles published (grrrr), I’ve a memory of reading that this was conceived along with Unity to help promote Pontypridd. I must be mistaken on that part, because the Chain Link Arches have so few hits on Google that it is as if no-one knew it was there 🙁
Unfortunately, I’ve been unable to find out anything more about this piece of art. If you know who the artist was, when it was first installed, and when it was finally removed, I’d love to hear from you in the comments below!Be the first to leave a comment »
