Temperance Lane, Circle/s in the Round for (Miles and Miles + 1)

This artwork which is created from flashing neon lights is located in Temperance Lane, off George Street. 'Circle/s in the Round for (Miles and Miles +1)' by Newell Harry, takes its title from the 1967 Miles Davis album, 'Circle in the Round'. The pulsating concentric circles are a visual homage to Davis and the encoded word-pun is supposed to remain undisclosed. My guess is 'Never Odd Or Even'. It is one exhibit in 'Are You Looking At Me? Laneway Art', which is part of the Art and About Sydney festival which is running from 23 September to 24 October 2010. The coloured lights also create a good reflection aon the 'For Sale' sign on the adjacent building in the laneway.
