ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION):
STORY: The 'Sculpture in the City' exhibition in the heart of the City of London's insurance district began on Wednesday (July 2) with the launch of unique piece of performance art called 'Box sized DIE featuring Unfathomable Ruination.' The installation, outside of the Gherkin building, was created by the Portuguese artist Joao Onofre and features the death metal band Unfathomable Ruination. The band were sealed inside a 2 meter squared steel cube from within which they played until the oxygen level was expended. The band remained in the box for over twenty minutes, while passers-by listened to the rumbles of noise from within the black cube. The band will perform as part of the performance work twice a day for five weeks.
