A visitor walks past the latest installation – a crack in the floor entitled ‘Shibboleth’ – by Colombian sculptor Doris Salcedo, in the Turbine Hall at the Tate Modern in London, Monday Oct. 8, 2007. The work, which begins as a hairline crack, widens and deepens as it runs the full 167 meters of the hall. Salcedo claims the work took her over a year to make, and she apparently made it elsewhere but has spent the past five weeks installing it in the Tate, but Tate director Nicholas Serota insisted it is not an optical illusion. The installation will be removed in April next year by filling in the crack. According to the artist, the piece is a statement about racism and the crack represents the gap between white Europeans and the rest of humanity. Gallery staff will be on hand to warn visitors about the dangers of tripping and falling into the gap.(AP Photo/Lefteris Pitarakis)
