I find this piece of art work intriguing because it is both informative and interesting to look at. Jenny Holzer enjoys incorporating words and ideas in public space, using LED signs, stickers or T shirts to convey her message. This is successful because it really engages with the viewer and catches their attention. It also reminds me of a sketch by Rembrandt in which he used writing in his painting to create a similar effect.
