BEAUTY: Sculpture--Mona Hatoum
Acclaimed Palestinian artist (now residing in London) Mona Hatoum created Hot Spot, a global cage with continents outlined in sizzling red neon. In journalistic terms, the word "hot spot" refers to an area where there is fighting, war, or serious political trouble. Disturbingly, Hatoum casts the entire world as a hot spot with all areas exhibiting signs of instability.
