Modern art tends to be a turn off for me but this artistic installation entitled Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red has seen the Tower of London's dry moat filled with over 800,000 ceramic poppies (888,246 poppies to be exact - one for each British and Colonial fatality during the War) to create a powerful visual commemoration for the First World War Centenary. It's been an amazing success, attracting huge crowds, as it is both simple and moving.
