Bold Tendencies, the rooftop location in Peckham, has spectacular views of London but the reason to visit is the arts venue (& cafe ). The current installation, Fiction, immerses the visitor into an unsettling world as I hope some of these photos taken at night show.

Jenny Holzer’s Inflammatory Wall with its 100 word extracts exploring a range of extreme ideas “setting fanatical statements against the certainties of common opinion” as the blurb says is worth spending time on. In an age of social media these are frighteningly relevant.

Matt Copson’s Agape (Infernal Cityscape) a fairground facade frames London (just visible here) & is itself framed by the city. Is this the entrance to our future?
