Vodafone has today unveiled a pop-up installation of London’s iconic skyline on the city’s South Bank to celebrate being named London’s Best Network by European testing company NET CHECK.
‘The Connected Skyline’ has been created by Brixton-based artist and sculptor Alex Wright, aka Wreckage, who has been making art from waste materials for more than 35 years. His talented team carefully crafted the structure over 19 days from nearly a tonne of recycled tech, network equipment and SIMs. The impressive 20ft long, 10ft high and 4ft deep structure (6x3x1.2m) depicts more than 10 of the City’s most iconic landmarks including The Shard, Big Ben and the recently renovated Battersea Power Station.
