energy Electric Storm comes to a close

The home page of Shell Electric Storm has been replaced with a bald statement that "Shell Electric Storm has now reached the end of its run. Thanks to everyone for your interest and support. Goodbye for now!".

I think its very shortsighted to disable the site in this way just because the event is over - but fear not, for the moment at least you can still enter the site and get to read the information that is still there, (and of course you can also find lots more info on my Electric Storm page).

The original plan at launch was to run the installation through to at least Valentines Day (Feb 14), but there does not seem to be any explanation given for ending it early. Personally, I was less than impressed with the sound, light, and misting effects of the installation - but the wind turbine looked magnificent on the river bank, and like the nearby London Eye I'd have liked its temporary planning permission to have been made permanent.
