The Victoria and Albert Museum's latest exhibition is a psychedelic time capsule of a show devoted to the band Pink Floyd, complete with floating pigs, surreal animations and trippy projections. It's not the visuals, or the group's experimental and sometimes indulgent music, that marks this show as an ode to a vanished time, but the economics. Pink Floyd was given limitless studio time to create sprawling albums that sold in the tens of millions. The band staged multimedia shows so huge and technically ambitious that the set for one tour took eight days to assemble.Several band members trained as architects, and the group had a fondness for building and dismantling large structures – like the giant barrier of "The Wall," which was destroyed every night of the band's 1980-81 tour.It is sprinkled throughout the show, and the final room features wraparound footage of the band at the 2005 Live 8 concert in London's Hyde Park.
