Until 1 September 2016 visitors to the Houses of Parliament can view a major new artwork 'The Ethics of Dust' in Westminster Hall.
Commissioned and produced by Artangel, this temporary art installation was created by artist, architect and conservationist Jorge Otero-Pailos. The artwork is a 50 metre long translucent latex cast of Westminster Hall’s east wall and contains hundreds of years of surface pollution and dust.
Suspended from the hall’s magnificent 28-metre high hammerbeam roof, the latex sheet contains innumerable particles of dust, soot and dirt gently lifted from the wall during the sensitive cleaning process.
