The Royal Academy

 
 
The Royal Academy of Art is looking particularly fantastic at the moment. In the courtyard you are greeted by Conrad Shawcross's "The Dappled Light of The Sun" sculpture. They are like low lying clouds of steel, and also gave me the impression of wandering through a forest of metal trees whose leaves throw peculiar geometric shadows.











The interior of the RA is equally impressive thanks to artist Jim Lambie's dazzling ZOBOP coloured tape installation on the stairs. There were so many people trying to take selfies using the stripy staircase as a backdrop and being moved on by the RA staff.
