Martin Creed, Work No. 232: the whole world + the work = the whole world, 2000

This artwork is made up of neon tubes that spell out words. It was created to be shown at Tate Britain in 2000, but now it’s going to be on show at Tate St Ives until September 2011.

This work can be put anywhere. Where would you put it?

It features an equation – a sum – that might be a little bit confusing. What do you think the equation means?

Think about lights in different spaces. Do you have a nightlight, or did you have one when you were little? What if the lights in your room started spelling out words? What would they say?

    ‘O’ how this building catches my heart!
    If I try to sketch it I’d never start!
    Great tall columns at the entrance!
    It’s so great I can hardly make a sentence!
    How it scapes the sky,
    ‘O’ this mighty building so high!
    The beautiful statues on the roof,
    I can almost see the unicorn stamp it’s hoof!
    Now I enter.
    Now I see.
    What this building is to me!

    There was once a rich man, long ago, who owned a house. A very big one. But it was colour-less. So, he made painters from the whole wide world, to make him paints. Soon, his house was like a museum, full of art works, all unique. Everybody peeked over the windows, so, he left them go inside, and soon it was crowded.
    After his death, his son, wanted to make a real museum, but there was something missing, so he called an artist to make an artistic phrase, for it to be in the museum.
    Martin Creed-the artist- loved maths, so he made an artistic phrase: “the whole world + work = the whole world”.
    He thought that the work made the wold. The son of the rich man loved it, and made the phrase to shine day and night, so everyone would know what the world was made of, and for it to be a phrase that would encourage people.
    Today, it still hangs there, reminding people of what the world is really made of in the thoughts of Martin Creed.

    Adventuring through the waterfall of saphirfe named after the great, blue jewel two children each longing to find this buety explored. one hoping to capture for the countries riches and one to only heal the harmed. But only one could take the jewel and they knew it so Emily, (who seeked the jewel for healing) tried to have a freindship with the other (Bernard) but he rejected thinking she only did so to earn his trust and take the jewel although this was most certainly not the case. Eentually after 16 full days of searching they came across a river, behind the river was a perfect blue magnificent jewel which was gaurded by golden gates that were unfortunatly LOCKED! Then bernardrealised that knowing that Emily couldn’t swim Bernard decided this was his chance. If he got rid of Emily, he could find a way to get in the secure, golden bars. Here goes…. ‘AAAHHHH!’ Emily was pushed in and everything went according to plan, Bernard was right Emily couldn’t swim therefore she was carried away with the current. ‘Yes! Now I am certain to get my hands on that glamorous jewel!’. laughing with evil pride he examened the gates as Emily was slowy disapearing. Dern dern dern! Emily woke up lying on a green, grassy bank, which was extremely unusual considering that the bank was half a metre down something must have carried her or was it just an illusion. ‘hello, my name is Chuck, what’s yours?’ a squeeky voice asked. Emily sat up, but to her amazment there was no body there… or was there? ‘Um, down here’ that little voice again. She looked down and saw a weird gerkin thing!
    ‘Did i hit my head. and err, how hard?’ Emily wondered slightly confused. ‘What are you?’. ‘I happened to be a gerkin!’he joked ‘Really! Nice to meet you Chuck the gerkin.’ Emily greeted him freindly ‘I was kidding anyway you have come to seek the saphire, what for?’ asked Chuck the gerkin-looking thing. ‘Umm, to heal’ replied Emily quite dazed. ‘Then there’s no time for jokes we must hurry, come on!’ said the gerkin thing quickly. They ran, well Chuck ran but to stay at the same pase Emily walked. Finally there infront of them was a tiny door about 15 centremetres high. ‘I’m supposed to go through that!’ Emily was astonished and started to panic. ‘No, no, no! You have to fit through that hole I susspect it will be large enough for you.’ He said opening and fitting through his door shortly followed by Emily (but through her hole). And then, there stood the saphire in it’s pure glory. ‘Well, what are you waiting for grab it and run, NOW!’ exclaimed the gerkin panicing. ‘Why is there such a rush?’ Emily asked, but before there could have been an answer a giant, terrifieing monster rose up and attemted to eat Emily’s leg just as Bernard spotted her with the jewel as his mouth gaped wide open. Emily, saphire, talking gerkin span round in his head over and over again. Emily dived through the hole and saved her life! They had done it who would have thought that a talking gerkin could have changed so many peoples lives, saving lives, wounds, curing deseases he was a miricle and this is where the story ends and oh, Bernard was eaten by a crocidle… only joking he was turned into a bowl of soup. The end!

    Once upon a time there was a girl a very curious girl named cleopatra, now Cleopatra came upon a tower which was delicate and fragile. Therefore Cleopatra destroyed the peeling tower and replaced it with a plastic bag factory which was actually a secret M.I.9 headquarters. Everyone wanted her to be killed ,apart from her family the Dergradies so they hid Cleopatra from the egyptian soldiers. A week after they had been hiding her they heard a crash coming from downstairs where they had been hiding Cleopatra… Cleopatra had been pulling faces out of the window and the egyptian soldiers had seen her and smashed through the window to arrest her.Therefore the Dergradies including Cleopatra were the main event at the next execution.

    This house is a very beatiful place to express your self i always was into art ever since i was a toddler art is my life now i am older in fact i wanna be a artist when i am older well or a archtect they both are good jobs. If i had to choose the words for a light i would be freedom for everyone is free in soul and heart but they just need to get there i guess. I have never had a night light as far as i am concerned. who ever made this peice of art must of thought what an random thing to do it is just so amazing how people can randomly think up things and just draw/write it i think this personal art work looks just fab on this building it not to stupied and its not to out standing its just ing the middle.

    The castle of Princess Kaitlyn in London, England. This castle was the building of which she would marry Prince Walker. She hummed as she twirled around her bedroom in her beauiful silk wedding gown. Her veil flowed down to her hips and her boquet of roses gave off a beautiful fragrance. “Your majesty, it is time.” Announced her makeup and hair artist, Emily. She quickly hustled down to the hallway, and took a quick glance into the ballroom. 1000 people were sitting in the beautifully laced chairs. As the music started, she began to step down the aisle. Hundreds of cameras were flashing and Walker was staring at her, his mouth agape. As she went through her vows and his, she quickly said I do, an d they were announced husband and wife

    A peom
    Oh how beautiful is this piece of art
    When I see it i place my hand on my heart
    I think to myself it just can’t be
    How someone could paint thee
    Then I thought maybe I could be taught of how
    Then when I am finished i will take a big bow
    THANK-YOU!!!

    Once there was a great building with the word Tate written brightly on the dark door.
    A little girl called Molly decided one day that she would go in. Little did she know her whole life would change. When she entered the large oak wood doors closed around her and many pieces of bright and dull art hung around her. Names were engraved in gold lettering at the bottom and she walked up to one with a strange coloured face. It read at the bottom Piccasso. Soon a man in a dark cloak and a long black beard appeared and told her to follow him. He led her into a a small room and asked her to paint her favourite painting in the building. She decided to paint the bright face she had seen earlier in the entrance hall. Finding oil paints, Molly was keen to start her painting and soon had all her equipment ready. Hours passed and soon the man came back and asked to see what she had done. Molly handed him her master piece and he stared at it in surprise. Minutes later the man spoke, “You are a true artist” he said happily and smiled for the first time that day. “You are to stay here and become an artist. As Molly was an orphan she agreed easily and in no time she was painting in her own style and selling many pieces. One day she thought to herself, what would of happened to me if i hadn’t entered that door, but she could never find out and went back to her marvelous life as an artist, retired as a million air and lived the rest of her life in luxary.

    One creepy night Were Wolfs were alive, Zombies were alive also Creepers worst of all Vampires. There was two young twins who coulden`t sleep at night so they went to thier parents room but before they opened the creepy door the Vampires were there and sucked their Father dry. They were pactrafied. The Vampires are in danger `coz` they have a ` Vampire Killer necalos` and the sun was about to rise so the Vampires turned into a bat and quickly in a flash of lighting they were gone like dust. But the mum was alive and she cheeked the kids room they were gone but they were under the bed crying. A nother night came and the creepers and zombies were outside fighting a old man so the zombies bit him and the creepers exploded and a massive hole was in the ground….. The vampires never came back but the mum had a clever thought if they look like a realist zombie and act like one the will never die so they did just that. But one of the twins were missing she was outside with the zombies but she was not in danger coz sunrise and creepers eploied and the zombies could catch on fire but she was in shade and a zombie was behind her and bit her and shewas dead. They feeded on her for 2 days. So the mum thought to die in a peaceful way by to be put to sleep and eated by zombies. the end i dont care if i had to write something else down ok hope u like it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    As I lay in my hard little bed, the darkness began to close in on all sides. The usual anxieties were creeping into my spinning head. What was that strange shadow? Why were the curtains twitching? Maybe I just left the window open, but hang on, that meant someone could get in! Suddenly, I sat bolt upright inbed, slamming the switch of my nightlight hard. Phew. I flicked on a torch for good measure, banishing the lingering blackness from every last corner. This happened every night. Pathetic really, but I could never stand the dark. Maybe I’d just keep the light on tonight.
    SQUEAK! I started at the strange, plasicy sound and whirled around to see my night light stretching eerily into the most horrifying shapes. I screamed as it contorted itself into a word, two words!
    I’m Tired.

    “What…” I stammered
    “You turn me on every night” the lamp now read, “It tires me out!”
    “I nodded and switched it off, wondering why I was taking orders from a night light. Then I began to feel creeped out again. How had it moved? Was it haunted. That’s when I woke up in the morning. It was a ll a dream. Phew. As I left the room, there was a strange SQUEAK. Turning around, I saw the word “Thanks!” Shining out of my night light…………

    The wind conducted the light, and nothing like it had ever been seen before. It shone, in hues of yellow and red, onto the most magnificent piece of art; words. What is more creative – more imaginative, than words?

    Once, a long, long, LONG time ago, there was an artist called Klack but people thought this quite an unusual name so they called him Bob. Now, one day Bob decided to become an architect so he built a building.
    On the 3rd of may he found out that his own building was haunted, so that night he went to see if it was true or if it was just a rumour.

    As he approached the door he heard an “OOOOOOOOOOHHH!””OOOOOOOOOOOHHH!!!”
    but he told himself these exact words : “I am not scared, I am not scared!” he repeated this again and again, until he got to be just a few centimetres away from the door. He reached out a hand to open the door, he stepped in.CRRRRREEEEEEEEEK!!! SLAM!!! The door had closed, but Bob had already closed it. “AgggHHHHHHHHH!” This was a girl’s scream. Bob knew that it was his turn to be heroic and rescue a princess, he ran to the rescue.
    He heard the screaming getting nearer and nearer, BUT, to his disoápointment when he got there he only found a six year old girl with ruby red hair., but as he was about to leave her she started to cry, and talking to me knoboddy likes to see a six year old cry , so he told her that he was going to get her out of the small space (for she was tied to the wall) so he made his way out of the room ( passed a couple of dead bodies) and into another room which had 1 ghost, 10 dead body’s and a skeleton that was alive in it. “Well, well, well, what have we here?” said the skeleton “I believe he has come to rescue Sapphire!” said the ghost “fight me” said the skeleton” if you kill me then you get Sapphire-“And if I don’t, then you get to keep her and” here he gulped and then carried on like this: ” And I die” Bob won the fight (even though it’s vertuely impossible to kill a skeleton)
    “oh no. your not finished with yet! ” said the ghost “and who says I am?!”Said Bob “I do!” The ghost turned into a blood -sucking vampire. Bob killed the vampire and seized the largest fang out of it.
    He ran into the room with Sapphire in it and cut the rope;
    Sapphire thanked him more than enough and they ran out of the building together to Sapphire’s house.
    At her house Sapphire told Bob that she was really the princess of the world RIGHTFULLY queen! but that would be another story!

    How do I know this?

    Because my great, great, great, well basicly one-million x great grandpa’s grandpa is (drum-roll )

    BOB !

    As the Tardis moaned, the crew where debating who’s go it was it open the doors and breathe the Cardiff air. ‘I should, I’ve been with the Doctor longest-he trusted me longer than you.’ Amy gabbled quickly, making up some nonsense.
    ‘Look, let Natalia do it- she’s the newest, and then again, probaly the most trust worthy here.’ the Doctor discussed fairly. Natalia rose to the moment, giggling happily seen as she had never stepped out there since she was very little- only 100 years old. She was born on Gallifrey, and the Doctor felt like he needed to run- only if he left her, she would live in wreckage and choke with musty burning of wood. He wished with all his heart she could of run along the red grass, capped with peaking snow. So he took her for apperently one trip, but she could not help looking mercyful. She was 90 years old when she met him. You may think she is old, but on Gallifrey you could live for thousands of years.
    As she stepped out, all she could see was a giant house, or building. ‘Doctor,’ she said ‘whats this? It’s not Cardiff….’
    ‘I’ll tell you what date is,’ he said, looking proud ’30th of october….2000?’
    ‘Wait, I regonise this building,’ Amy replied, stepping out of the Tardis ‘wait… is this the tate modern, Rory?’
    ‘Mm, I think so,’ Rory smiled ‘why are we here though? Are the paintings coming alive?’

    In the palace an ancient king has lived for centuries. His name is King Steven Mullard Kensington. Unfortunately the ancient King is trapped inside and cannot escape. The only way to escape is by handing the throne over to his sister. King Steven’s sister is a kind woman and always thinks about others. She will do anything to save her brother , as she loves him dearly. Because the King is trapped inside no – one can enter. Luckily King Steven has servants and butlers and people to do everything for him, to keep him company. Unfortunately , this is the only company he gets. One day King Steven was terribly bored and so asked one of his servants to come up with a phrase to cheer him up. When the servant came back he read the phrase to him. “the whole world + the work = the whole world.” King Steven loved and after that he was a much happier man…

    This is a place deep to the heart, emotion and feeling floods through the door when opened. Where Princess Tate once lived, loved, died. The reason it id called tate morden is because of the history of the lonely princess wishing to be modern

    once upon a time there was a house in the middle of nowhere. tourists never seemed to visit, for a tale said that it was haunted. and so it was, for a little talking monument called Gary lived there and stayed on his little podium all day long. he was a lonely little monument, sitting there all day with nothing to do exept for his sister, Maisie. One day they felt a little adventurous and gary stiffly pushed himself of his podium and attempted to walk for the first time. He shuffled. He shifted. He tried his best to create some movement for the first time EVER. Noone was sucsessful, not even his best friend, Barrie. Finally they borrowed some spare arms from Andy the octopus with never ending legs. They enjoyed pushing themselves like crutches onthe floor VERY VERY slowly. then suddenly a creak came from the entrance. a person came in. It was the deadly NIGHTGUARD. the monuments panicked a shook and limped back to their podiums as quick as possible. the night guard spotted both of them and jumped at both of them. They both smashed, and the nightguard payed £3,000 to the museums lawyer and all the monuments has a minutes silence every 11th of november and that, my friend is how rememberance day was invented and they all lived miserably ever after

    This gallery was once owned by a king and his wife. The building had started crumbling and the queen was getting worries. Unfortunately, one day they went out, and when they got back their building had crumbled down. They were devastated and thought their building would never be the same again, so they didn’t bother trying to build it back into their home again. They thought about what they loved best. Art! So they decided to turn it into a gallery. All of the top artists wanted to feature their work in the King and Queens art gallery. Everyone came to this gallery and it is still standing today.

    ‘O’ how this building catches my heart!
    If I try to sketch it I’d never start!
    Great tall columns at the entrance!
    It’s so great I can hardly make a sentence!
    How it scapes the sky,
    ‘O’ this mighty building so high!
    The beautiful statues on the roof,
    I can almost see the unicorn stamp it’s hoof!
    Now I enter.
    Now I see.
    What this building is to me
