I THINK the Sluice is a success. Over the millennia many works of art contemporary to the period have caused controversy and discussion. This is certainly true of modern art. The Sluice has created a wealth of discussion and criticism and this shows an appreciation of the sculpture, even if it is negative.

My criticism is not of the sculpture itself, but of its location. It would be much more successful closer to the city centre, perhaps on the way down to the river where it would create an anticipation of the real thing, moving water.
