This is a sculpture called Slice of Reality by Richard Wilson. This seemed like a life-sized diagram that you might find in a text book about boats; I thought it would be a good place to hear dockers talk about the intricacies of loading and unloading cargo. Listening to dockers voices, the sculpture becomes another kind of memorial to a way of life that has disappeared here in London.
