Flight of Fancy with Slipstream
Tommy working on the Slipstream project

Futurecity were appointed by London Heathrow Airport to curate an artwork for the Covered Court of the new Terminal 2 building, due to open in 2014. They managed an international competition, short-listing five world-class artists and the commission was awarded to Richard Wilson RA for his ambitious vision: Slipstream.

The final design will physically integrate with the architecture of the new Terminal 2 building and be suspended from four roof-supporting columns. 

The finished sculpture will be unveiled at the opening of the new Terminal 2 building in 2014 and Tommy have been enlisted by Futurecity to help document that journey over the next year or so. 

Much more of this story to follow but for now do marvel at the amazing animation which should give you a sense at the sheer ambition of this project http://tomm.my/SlipstreamProject
