Video footage taken by student Matt Colquhoun shows the seemingly endless stream of carrots - and some potatoes - spilling out of the large truck while confused students watched on Tuesday. The 29-tonne pile was later revealed as an art installation called Grounding, by Rafael Perez Evans ahead of Goldsmiths's MFA degree show, which will kick off on Friday.
