Artist Clare Newton will be attempting to set a world record for the world’s longest photographic montage at ExCeL exhibition centre.

The record be will be adjudicated by Guinness World Records when it is exhibited at ExCeL London, from June 1 - 9.

The photographic montage measures one kilometre by two metres and consists of over 109,000 images of people across London jumping against London backdrops that have been seamlessly stitched together.

As London’s largest events venue the ExCel London creates a perfect flexible exhibition space for this unique photograph.

The Jump4London project, which has taken over 15 months to complete saw Clare Newton travelling around London and the home countries, organising 87 events for people to take part in the world record attempt and jump. The participants include a huge cross section of London life, with members from the Paralympic teams, students, tourists, famous boxers, some in costumes and even one person on a mono bike leaping into the air.
