Artist and environmentalist Christo's new work "The Floating Piers" will allow visitors to walk on water: he's designed a structure which is three kilometers long and 16 meters wide, extending across the water of Lake Iseo, northern Italy.
Composed of over 7,000 oil barrels, the sculpture by the revered artist floats on the Serpentine Lake in London's Hyde Park through September 23. It accompanies a retrospective of Christo and Jeanne-Claude's work.
Installation artist Christo, famous for wrapping Berlin's Reichstag, had planned to drape Colorado's Arkansas River with fabric. Now he's abandoned the idea because the land is under the management of President Trump.
