Did you spot the grand piano hanging above the old BBC building?

Spotted a grand piano suspended in the sky in west London? Don't worry, the hot weather hasn't impaired your vision. The BBC Television Centre’s East Tower in White City is set to be demolished and redeveloped later this year, but before that happens it's just sitting there empty. So someone came up with the bright idea to stick some art up there to distract from all those cranes, which is where the floating piano comes in.

It's the work of Catherine Yass, who's one of eight artists in residence at the site as part of a project commissioned by White Noise. Sadly, the piano was only hanging around for one day, but if you missed it, here are some more pictures of the musical masterpiece.
