The pieces will go on display in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park between October 19 and 27, at what will become the UCL East site.

They include a sensory piece created in collaboration with visually impaired people and and a sculpture designed to act as both watering cans and portable urinals.

Sam Wilkinson, head of public art at UCL Culture, said: “After ten months of careful collaboration between contemporary artists and ground-breaking scientists and engineers from UCL, I’m delighted that the public can finally see these four unique installations.

“Inspired by the history and the future of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, the four artworks are free for everyone to enjoy.”
