Heathrow's Slipstream

Futurecity has unveiled plans for a gigantic aluminium sculpture to dominate the interior of Heathrow Airport's new £2.5bn Terminal 2, due for completion in 2014 (CLICK). At 230ft in length, Richard Wilson's Slipstream will be the longest permanent sculpture in Europe. It's supposed to represent the thrill of an air show, but to me it looks like a giant screw. Its unintended message to victims of the UK's Border Agency appears to be "Screw you". Green thought!

Most won't be bothered so long as their luggage arrives ok and they aren't delayed. It looks typical of today's rotton art and something that should be up for the Turner Prize. Even more nonsense.

Don't think I'd like that thing dangling over my head.
