Woah...I want to thank everyone for all this positive feedback...its really great to know people appreciate something that you weren't sure about yourself.
Although I would like to say-I do respect Doris Salcedo as a legitimate artist and in no way want to think of myself as better than her... I am just offering my opinion on a specific piece. I think that it is ironic to make a statement about divisions between race, in the centre of a vastly multicultural city, although other divisions it represents (class etc) may be more relevant...I'm just trying to have a more positive outlook on life.
About hose Ideas of extending the bridge Idea (more bridges, miniature people etc) I was fairly happy with the simplicity of the piece, but I do like the idea of people adding their own ones...

I couldnt agree with you more. and I love what you did here,
My only hope is that this artist fades to obscurity for her pretentiousness.
And that you are remembered for thinking the way we are supposed to think.,

Oh my...that means a helluva lot coming from you... I love the work you do and find it very inspiring-thank you so much...(cocksucking ends)
also-this is my favorite shot of the Bridge.
I probably need to think up a name for this now...I can only think of 'bridging the gap'...which kinda sucks...hard.
no but thanks again to everyone who posted here.
