David A Hardy's rollercoaster vision

At 114.5 metres high, the sculpture is taller than the Statue of Liberty in New York so not only would you get a great ride, but you would also have fantastic views of London and the entire Olympic Park

Birmingham, UK -- 22 July 2011 - With the London Olympics opening in a year from Wednesday (27 July 2011), one question has been puzzling visionary artist, David A Hardy. What can be done to make the 22.7 million pound artwork, the ArcelorMittal Orbit, more than just an abstract piece of art? As can be seen from his illustration, he suggests that it could form the heart of a state of the art roller-coaster ride.

“The twists and turns in the sculpture reminded me of the organic form of a roller-coaster,” explained David. “This would be a perfect fusion of art and entertainment. At 114.5 metres high, the sculpture is taller than the Statue of Liberty in New York so not only would you get a great ride, but you would also have fantastic views of London and the entire Olympic Park at the same time.”

David is one of the world’s leading visionary artists having collaborated with the likes of Patrick Moore and Arthur C Clarke to create visions of the future. Based in the UK, he has won numerous awards including ‘Best Artist’ at this year’s European SF Convention in Stockholm, written and illustrated top selling books such as “Visions of Space”, and his artwork has been used all over the world from NASA to New Scientist Magazine. His website is astroart and a high res version of the illustration can be obtained from info@astroart.org or 0121 777 1802. www.astroart.org
