This text work by New York-based artist Lawrence Weiner is located on an old railway bridge over the Bolton Bury canal in Radcliffe and represents the artist's attempt to understand the nature of water itself.

Weiner is one of the central figures of late 20th Century art and is thought to be one of the founders of conceptualism. Since the mid-1960s, Weiner has used written language as his primary material.
