    I was in the spectacular National Museum of Art in Ontario and in a passage between two galleries I saw a round, internal window. When I looked through it, this is what I saw. There was no title or other indication on the wall of this being an installation. I'm not sure if it was art or an area under construction.

    If this isn't flipped, you've got fluorescent up-lighting. The mirrors are showing what I assume to be water damage.

    Of course; I could be all wet.

    It isn't flipped. It looked like water damage to me, but I've mistaken installations for construction sites in the past. I once saw a stainless steel girder at the Whitney in New York which had a sign on it reading, "This stainless steel girder is a work of art only when accompanied by this signed notice from the artist, Walter De La Maria. At all other times it is just a stainless steel girder. I thought it was the best oblique attempt at defining art I had come across.

    $14,000,000,000 US. I require 75% down before work commences. I accept cash, plastic and PayPal.

    Very odd for thr lighting to be facing up and the irregularity of the demo-ed walls in the background. Even the repetition of the seemingly small rooms with mirrored walls. None of which makes immediate sense. But if it's wasn't signed ... it wasn't art.

    The $14,000,000,000 is acceptable, but 10% mobilization, progressive payments, 30 day pay periods, prevailing wage and you gotta bond it. (PS- and LD's if not completed per schedule.)

    Maybe a training site for fireman and electrical fires?
