Visual Description : Mixed media abstract wall hanging consisting of a square piece of wood with curved metal extensions on all sides and a central multi-layered plexiglass and plastic piece. The bottom layer of the centre piece is square and fluorescent pink in colour. The layer above is also square, resembling a box, and is clear with thin, red and blue stripes in a starburst formation. Mounted on the top centre of this box layer is a fluorescent-pink, circular layer. The very top layer of the centre piece consists of red, circular lumps piled on top of one another. The outer sides of the metal extensions are painted dark blue as well as the edges of the central wooden piece. Attached to the back of the wooden piece are three thin, cylindrical lengths of clear plastic, one in each of the three corners. The fourth corner has wire affixed to it, presumably to allow for hanging.
