Jeppe Hein's Appearing Rooms at the South Bank Centre. A spectacular water sculpture by the Danish artist on the terrace outside the Royal Festival Hall.

Walls of water in the aquatic pavilion rise and fall randomly to divide the 10msq space into a series of smaller 'rooms': changing every ten seconds, they define all possible right-angled configurations of the space. As viewers walk through the 'rooms' they must interact with the patterns of rising and falling water if they are to leave the space without getting wet.
