Light Up Queen Street: Rush Hour

The daily commute leads me from Bank tube station to London Wall by foot. I often pass through King Street which is at the head of Queen Street, leading directly towards Guildhall. One day in November, I noticed strange happenings on the street.

Above is Prudent Passage, which leads off from King Street, featuring a piece of motion artwork called Rush Hour. It is one of four pieces of artwork that are collectively referred to as Light Up Queen Street. There is a much larger version of this piece currently operating opposite St.Mary-le-Bow church on Cheapside.
