East Float, Wirral Waters: Anthony McCall – Column

15 September – 25 November 2012

Column is a vertical, spinning, ascending  column of cloud that rises into the sky from  the surface of East Float, Wirral Waters,

on the edge of the Mersey directly opposite  the City of Liverpool. The sculpture  ascends to and beyond the cloud base  and disappears and reappears, in response  to weather and light conditions.  Column was commissioned by  Arts Council England as part of Artists Taking the Lead, Arts Council England’s  flagship project for the London 2012  Cultural Olympiad.


  1. Plenty of cloud in sight but none of it spinnig. Wouldn’t surprise me if we never see it….nor the 500k it cost….
