London changes so fast that it is sometimes hard to remember what once was. Take this picture of the Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall. This is one of the most epic spaces in London and has been home to amazing art creations such as Louise Bourgeois’ magnificent spider, Olafur Eliasson’s entrancing sun, Ai Weiwei’s controversial sunflower seeds, Michael Clark’s dancing spectacular and currently Tacita Dean’s mesmerising films but it was only opened in 2000. These installations have made such an impression that it is sometimes hard to remember what the huge hall was originally designed for so here it is in all it’s rusty, industrial glory.
