Goings On Under The Bridge

There's a couple of interesting things happening under Hungerford Bridge at the moment.

Firstly, this weekend, publishing house Picador together with sound artist Martyn Ware have created an audio installation on the South Bank playing the sounds of 20ft waves. It's quite odd to stand on the edge a look at the river and hear waves all around you.

Secondly, the BBC have create Blast Studio, a remote control art installation in one of railway arches. You can have a go at controlling the various devices in the installation on the website. The tools will be available 12 noon - midnight BST until 9 June.
