The birth place of Pink Floyd and Queen. Right on the street of Chelsea, where the swinging sixties miniskirt obsession turned into an international trend. The only place in the world where you leave Soho after a night out and still can enjoy Duck and Waffles at 3 am on the 40th floor. Explore Bricklane and Camden to get fully immersed into the British way of contemporary culture. Scavenge through piles of vintage second hand designer stores in Notting Hill, and if you’re in luck, you might find a pair of Chanel trousers for a price ofTopshop.

Olafur Eliasson, the Danish-Icelandic artist is known for large-scale installation arts,who specialises in elemental materials such as light, water and air temperature. The artist is famous for creating unpredictable creations that trigger the sensorial experience of the audience as they move through the space. The ‘Olafur Eliasson In Real Life’ exhibition, which held at the Tate Modern London definitely didn’t fail to impress us once again, as he brought back another spectacular collection this year for Londoners to mesmerise.
The highlights of the event are the, Room for one colour and Your uncertain shadow (colour) installations. In the first piece, Eliasson invites the audience to walk through a room of optical illusion with Monofrequency lamps mounted to the ceiling of a long white corridor. The lamps emit yellow light that reduces the viewers' spectral range to yellow and black, transforming everything into semi black and white.
The second piece is made up of of five coloured spotlights, directed at a white wall, were arranged in a line on the floor. By standing before these lights, figures are projected onto the wall on the opposite end as an array of five different colour silhouettes.
The hustle and bustle of London street is what captivates me to this city so much, it’s the people that make the place become alive. During my early times in London the Tate Modern is one of my most visited places within the capital, a weekly visit was a usual routine. The combination of contemporary arts and the converted structure of the old power station only reinforced how art is deeply rooted into the British culture.
