Flash Briefing
What: Illuminated River in 360 - Virtual Tour
Illuminated River is the first artistic and cohesive vision for the central Thames bridges, celebrating them as architectural, social and historical landmarks, and creating a symbolic link across the capital. Once complete, at 2.3 miles in length, along 4.5 nautical miles of the Thames, it will be the longest public art commission in the world, seen over 130 million times each year. Free and publicly accessible for all to enjoy, Illuminated River transforms the experience of the city at night, and defines the bridges as renewed civic spaces for Londoners. Conceived by American artist Leo Villareal and British architectural practice Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands, and delivered by the Illuminated River Foundation, the artwork has been sensitively developed, paying attention to heritage, wildlife and the built environment. Working with cutting edge LED technology to ‘paint with light’, Leo Villareal produces sequenced patterns that subtly unfold across the Thames bridge structures. Swipe to explore the Illuminated River artwork in 360 on London, Cannon Street, Southwark and Millennium bridges.
