Skystation unveiled at the Hayward Gallery

  • Comment

Artist Peter Newman has revealed The Skystation, a Corbusier-inspired chaise-long which forms the first installment of the Futurecity seating project

Newman calls the circular structure ‘both sculptural and interactive. Its contours are intended to fit the reclining human figure enabling the public to gaze up at the sky and gain a different perspective of the city’.

Skystation is part of a larger public seating project initiated and curated by the cultural agency behind Mark Wallinger’s ‘White Horse’. Futurecity. The aim is to develop a ‘constellation’ of Skystations in 100 locations, across the UK and internationally, called the 100 Places Project.

The 100 Places Project will become a shared public art experience across the whole network. Users will be encouraged to take photographs of the sky above and the project will be linked by a collaborative website where these photographs can be posted.

Futurecity is launching this new sculptural seat by artist Peter Newman as part of an exhibition of the artist’s works at The Hayward Gallery, Southbank Centre, London from today, 8 July until 14 September.
