    1. It was fascinating to sit and listen to the audio of people from all over the world talk about their near death experiences.

    Maybe not my kind of thing, but I think all cities should do this kind of thing because whether you love or hate a piece, it gets people talking.

    1. Louisa,

      I agree that art should challenge. And this installation did that. It was really moving. The audio component had me near tears. Listening to someone talk about feeling as though they were being called into the light then recognising that they were not ready and they had children that would be left alone, or a pet to look after, or some other reason to not die. It was both sad and incredibly positive. I agree that art should challenge.

      Viva l’arte!
