Photos taken from the telly, just incredible. The moon passes in front of the sun leaving a ‘diamond ring’ effect as it shines through the valleys in the moon and the sun’s ‘corona’ during the total eclipse.
This temporary exhibition created by by artist Tobias Rehberger for the 14-18 NOW, WW1 Centenary Art Commissions is inspired by a style of optical distortion used during the First World War called Dazzle painting. Devised by British artist Norman Wilkinson and supervised by the amazing Edward Wadsworth, the camoflage technique incorporated bold shapes and strong contrasts with the aim to confuse rather than conceal. See it on the North side of the Thames opposite the Oxo building.
