ART: Hot Spot by Mona Hatoum

Well-known as a purveyor of alienation and despair, an artist who delights in turning kitchen utensils into instruments of torture, Mona Hatoum's many fans weren't disappointed by this work displayed at Mason's Yard a few years back.

Mona wields blazing neon red lights to illustrate the areas of conflict on Earth. That is to say… every area on Earth. More after the jump:

A steel globe with the continents outlined in neon, it completely dominates the massive ground floor space. 

Casting a malevolent orange glow and fizzing with electricity, it manages to be both unsettling and mesmerizing at the same time.
