Jenny Holzer

Possibly my favorite artist. Probably to do with both her humour and typography. (And posted here today due to inspiration by Dawn's little notes to herself ;-)

These three hang in the little room pictured above..

A few years ago I used to freelance for Norways biggest telecom corporation.They are situated in this modern complex where they have invested in a lot of great contemporary art (sadly much misunderstood by a lot of the staff). Along the roof top of one building they have this LED electronic sideboard running 24 hrs with Jenny Holzer's truisms. It's wonderful! Some days when I had to drag myself to work in the dark winter mornings, commuting with all these other tired faces, to be met by this artwork always lifted my spirits.
