Curated London

This site-specific installation consists of three metal sticks with very bright lights on the end slowly turning around. That's really it. Oh, and a metal spike in the floor. In the blurb, Shawcross tells us it's a clock inspired by its surroundings in Camden's historic Roundhouse theatre. This is neither here nor there. Its three spinning sticks with lights on. And - spoiler alert - it doesn't tell the time. In the interests of fairness: others in the party quite liked it. One may have used the terms 'reflective', 'calming' and even 'quiet introspection'. But what do they know? Good for: people who wear sunglasses indoors. Bad for: the impatient. Allow: five minutes, max. For more from me, check out www.curatedlondon.co.uk | @CuratedLondon
