The supposed art and stupid people staring at the art.
It's just a crack in the floor. I'm more interested in how they did it than the "art" itself.

My favourite part of it all is the artist's statement. Had me in stitches.

Oh I know. That was on the little pamphlet they gave us as we went in.

It might be amusing to go back with a big tub of Polyfilla...

Like Kos I'm more interested in how this 'effect' was achieved.

What I suspect they did was take out a series of slabs in the floor and replaced them with the "art" slabs. From looking at the supports it's rather clear they didn't add a layer and they didn't remove all of the floor. So that has to be it.

doesn't make me laugh or question - just makes me mad and sad!
just walking round some parts of any city or scarred place can do that without the obsenity of the money involved!

Viv I agree. I don't think it's art. It's jsut a fake crack in the floor.

i don't know, i liked it. i liked the scale of it, and for me, anything that makes people engage with the piece is always going to be interesting. i've spent less time with more critically acclaimed installations, but this kept me hanging around and watching people react to it, because the results were just so funny. for me, it worked.

does no one see the utter irony here ? she (the artist) has had to install a crack in the foundation of this iconic building, it wasnt there before because its not real

Kostika says:

That isn't the art though Nige, that's the people. My shot above is about the people, not the supposed art.

nige says:

i disagree. to me, the people and their reaction are just as much a part of it as the installation itself. imo it's all one and the same.

yes i understand and maybe even agree - but still find it an obscene waste of money etc
