I don’t know how the likes of Kirstie Allsopp or Sarah Beany will feel about this one, but British artist Roger Hiorns has really done a great job of the “refurbishment” of this council flat in Elephant & Castle (London, UK). Indeed, he has been so good with this rennovation project that it has won the author a nomination for the coveted Turner Prize.

This mad copper sulfate fest – 75,000 litres of solution were required – which looks like something out of 20,000 Leagues under the sea, has today reopened for visitors.
