Take my lightning but don't steal my thunderThe top half of Covent Garden Market appears to be floating in mid-air, thanks to a new installation in the Piazza.

Alex Chinneck’s installation, ‘Take My Lightning but Don’t Steal My Thunder’, is an exact replica of part of the market’s façade, but its upper half has ‘broken away’ from the base.

The installation is made from steel and expanded polystyrene, which took five hundred hours to shape, and uses a counterweight to suspend the top half in mid-air.

Take a closer look at the installation here and tell us what you think.

Bernhard Lang’s ‘Aerial Views Adria’ documents hundreds of colourful beach umbrellas along the Adriatic coastline in Italy, capturing lines of patterned circles on a sandy backdrop.

On the other side, the birds-eye view reveals that we are just small creatures, not as important as we think we are.”
