PSFK Coverage Of The 2012 LondonOlympics

Nestled between the state of the art sporting facilities at London’s Olympic Park is a new permanent art installation created by British visual artists Heather Ackroyd and Dan Harvey.

Commissioned by the Olympic Delivery Authority, the History Trees exhibit comprises of 10 trees surrounded by large suspended typographic rings. Measuring 15m in diameter, the rings are made from phosphored bronze and stainless steel and are engraved with a story inspired by the area in which they have been installed. Artist Lucy Harrison collected stories and worked off of research provided by the Museum of London to come up with the text inscribed on each ring.
