The London Eye is getting a political makeover

Every night for the next week, the London Eye will be getting lit up with loads of different colours. Apart from injecting a bit of colour along the Thames, the light show will be a visualisation of the public’s political views ahead of the general election on May 7. Artists Bompas & Parr are designing the show using Facebook’s election data and each night will look at a different topic. It kicks off tonight with a colour-coded display of the main political parties that are getting people talking on Facebook. Spoiler alert: UKIP was the most talked about – so expect a rather purple-y London Eye tonight.
