Exterior view: The Man - a kinetic scu;pture on display at Trinity Buoy Wharf. One of a pair with a second figure called The Lady. When in motion the figures are rarely both in the 'correct' position simultaneously. Location: Trinity Buoy Wharf, Docklands. Trinity Buoy Wharf has a number of the original Dock buildings still standing. These include the Experimental Lighthouse and the Chain and Buoy Store (Archt: James DOUGLASS, 1864) used for training and trials. The wharf was occupied by Trinity House for the repair, maintenance and storage of their buoys and lightships. Closed in 1988, it re-opened in 1998 as a centre for the arts and creative industries. The Long Player project (Jem FINER, 2000-3000) is based within the Lighthouse and the University of East London has Fine Art and Dance studios here. Container City I (2001) & II (2002) and Riverside Building (2005) are buildings made from containers infiltrated onto the site between different existing buildings. Urban Space Management, who developed the site and commissioned The Faraday Effect, have their offices in The Riverside Building.
