I hope they don't waste the opportunity of creating a nice lighting scheme.

Sorry for the lateness, it is practically complete though.

It looks a little rough now. However I think the landscaping around the base and the completion of the viewing platform will change things dramatically.

Looks like the Orbit is being used in other ways. They were testing spot lights from top of the Orbit shining onto the stadium for the closing ceremony etc. They were also experimenting with lasers and what not. Caught some of it on BBC London news yesterday:

British music will be at the centre of the closing ceremony of this summer's Olympic Games on 12 August.

The show called 'A Symphony of British Music' will involve established British acts and new talent, said creative director and choreographer Kim Gavin.

Games chiefs will have less than 24 hours to set the stage for the ceremony after the end of the athletics action.

The London Symphony Orchestra will record the core orchestral soundtracks for the opening and closing ceremonies.

Mr Gavin added: "Music has been Britain's strongest cultural export of the last 50 years and we intend to produce an Olympic closing ceremony that will be a unique promotion of great British popular music.

"For the closing ceremony we will not only be working with our most globally successful musicians, but we also want to use this opportunity to showcase our stars of tomorrow."

The names of artists playing on the night have not yet been revealed but London 2012 organisers Locog said the 4,100 performers at the ceremony would include 3,500 adult volunteers and 380 schoolchildren from the six Olympic host boroughs.

The 10,500 athletes who have competed in the Games will also be in attendance while an expected worldwide television audience of around 750m people will watch.

This thing is something from Lovecraft universe. You know... non-euclidean geometries... makes you go insane just by looking at it...
