a bright start for the year of dragon

The Trafalgar Sun
Trafalgar Square

What could be better to have the Sun shining in Trafalgar Square on the first day of the Year of Dragon (Chinese New Year)? A sponsored comission made by Greyworld is up for today in Trafalgar Square.

Similar to the artifical sun once shining in Tate Modern? Well it's outdoor this time!

It does look better when the sky is dark (because the crane holding the sun is... yellow!), so perhaps you can try to get a look after sunset if you are around. Check out the making-of video below if you want to know how it was made.
