Designed by the part sculptor, part installation artist and part musician Richard Wilson, in 2007 Wilson installed 'Turning the Place Over' in a former Yates's Wine Lodge building within Liverpool City Centre. The art feature comprises of an 8-metre diameter disc from the walls and windows of the building. These were attached to a motor which literally turns this section of the building inside out in a cycle lasting just over two minutes.

Although access to the inside of the building for a closer look at the mechanics was not possible the rooftop itself allowed for some fantastic views of the surrounding area. However, a Saturday night is the worst time to explore in the City Centre with the amount of people about and the amount of Police patrolling.

For those who are unfamiliar with it, here's a video showing it in action. Youtube.


Cheers for looking, Jimmy.
