    Im not good with this modern art stuff, so I would probably say its an overpriced bit of tin spelling out America, with a bit of dodgy wiring thrown it.

    On a different note, When Tate modern was a power station, chap I know very well was a maintenance manager, he has a world of amusing stories about the place!

    Not very good at fighting but have lots of money so the friendly fire casualties don’t seem to matter.

    Or something.

    This is the pretentious crap: πŸ™‚

    Glen Ligon 1960
    Born and works United States

    “Ligon’s untitled sculpture cleverly subverts the usual language of contemporary America. The glass tubes are painted black with some small abrasions on the paint surface nearest the wall. So that only chinks of light can be seen indirectly reflecting of the wall behind, creating a subtle halo-like effect around the blackness of the letters.

    The work might be seen to comment on the proliferation of commercial signs and the self- obsessed nature of American society . Whilst simultaneously recalling the art historical precedents set by canonical American artists such Dan Flavin Bruce Nauman”.

    So now you know and I thought it was just fluorescent light that spelt America just show how uneducated I am.

    What a load of Bollocks
