Creative Commemoration

Paul Cummins’ installation of a carpet of thousands of ceramic poppies around the Tower of London is a must see before its ends on the 11th November.

Named ‘Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red’, the number of poppies will keep on growing until there are 888,246 poppies (the number of British Soldiers who died in the First World War). This shows how even commemorative installations are getting creative and finding new ways to engage with the public and spaces.
