turning the place over

Today I saw this amazing art/engineering installation in Liverpool. Basically, they’ve cut a huge circle in the side of a disused building, through concrete and glass alike and hooked it up to a huge kind of pivot thingy that rotates the circular section. It’s pretty stunning and creates loads of optical illusions as it goes round. Well worth a visit if you’re in the area.
