I'm not much of a fan of modern art, but I do like Thomas Heatherwick's work and you've caught 'The b of the bang' very well (especially as the ends of some of the spikes have fallen off and there is a large fence around it). I think the colour compliments the structure very well and it makes an effective abstract.
