Artist's description:

This is a piece of Conceptual Art

This is an unofficial Party Political Broadcast by the Conservative Party.

The ready-made stainless steel “Can” has the Latin words "Carpe Diem”, which means "Seize the Day" in English, which was the closing words of the Conservative Party Conference today by the current United Kingdom Prime Minister, Theresa May, known for the quote "Brexit means Brexit". Ironically, she's making a move to build more Grammar Schools, the traditional schools in which Latin is taught, which has entry exams, however, other schools, which don't teach Latin, and teach English. She said "Seize the Day" in English trying to appeal to the Working Classes and they would understand, instead of the true Latin version "Carpe Diem", ironically. Anyway, I wasn't going to make a piece of art today, but thought I would "Seize the Day" or "Carpe Diem", whichever one you prefer, and make an Artwork today.

Conservative Party colours of Blue have been used as the background, and the text.

End of unofficial Party Political Broadcast by the Conservative Party.
