Slipstream, by Richard Wilson, is an ambitious sculpture that combines precision engineering with the sense of velocity and movement of a stunt plane. The sculpture will fill the length of Terminal 2's Covered Court, twisting through the atrium and physically integrating with the architecture. At over 70m long and weighing 77 tonnes, it will be the longest permanent sculpture in Europe. With an estimated 20 million people travelling through the terminal per year, Slipstream will be one of the UK's most viewed artworks.
