I WALKED down to The Maltings specifically to judge the Sluice sculpture.

It either hadn't been switched on, has broken down already, or has been positioned so badly that when the sun falls on it the images on the screens can't be seen. This makes it difficult to judge the work, as I couldn't see the intended effect.

I was hoping to be able to offer a positive assessment, but as a stand-alone sculpture, without the images, the piece has no relevance, and little artistic merit. It's positioning doesn't enhance it either; being clustered next to trees and two information boards, it looks as if it is waiting for notices to be posted on it.

I'm in favour of money being spent on enhancing the open spaces in the city, and not against 'modern' interpretations of art, but can't help feeling we could have got more for our money in this case.
