700m kaleidoscopic walkway brightens up the Peninsula

Greenwich Peninsula is a bright place to be this spring, as a new artwork “brings joy to the public through a myriad of colours.”

Artist Liz West has been commissioned to create “Hundreds and Thousands” for the Tide park in North Greenwich this spring.

The artwork has wrapped 700 metres of the walkway’s glass balustrades, creating a ribbon of undulating colour. The installation contemplates the subtle nuances of light in this unique riverside location as we transition from Winter to Spring.

The work is part of an ongoing exploration of colour and scale, using The Tide as an evolving platform.  Greenwich Peninsula says they are focussed on creating engaging transitional spaces and outdoor experiences for visitors and residential communities of the Peninsula.

Artist Liz West is a British artist who graduated from Glasgow School of Art and whose body of work encompasses site-specific installations, sculpture, and wall-based artwork.

Liz has been commissioned worldwide by institutions and organisations including the Natural History Museum, National Trust, and London Design Festivalamong others.
