Kapoor: Olympic Ring Master

Following the AJ’s story about Anish Kapoor’s Olympic Park sculpture (AJ 21.01.10), the Sunday Times had a crack at a visualisation – it looked rather like a set of deconstructed Olympic rings

If this is accurate, they will need approval in triplicate from the International Olympic Committee, which is exceptionally prickly about anyone monkeying about with its symbol, or indeed its colours, which have massive global copyright protections. Perhaps they could bypass all this by making the sculpture an emblem of the so-called ‘Cultural Olympiad’, which thus far seems to resemble a vacuum.
