other bits did seem to be a little strange some of the painting (not sure if they were) were just large shapes of different colours and were just a little too abstract for my liking
That sounds like mark rothko's pieces in the tate, I thought they were wonderfully atmospheric!

The Saatchi collection was much funnier but of less artistic merit I think, some people couldn't bare to look at Hirst's work! Apparently it's gruesome or something.

The Saatchi collection is amazing, not because i think it holds great artistic merit but i think it has the power to shock, although there are sum good pieces in his collection, such as the giant face. I think both locations also have fantasic building tate modern is stunning and county hall is also stunning but in a less dramatic way.

I believe so, the walls in the room were grey if I recall correctly and it was slightly dimmed. It added to the effect of the paintings. Although simplisitic paintings such as Rothko may not be able to captivate your concious attention for long their inherent atmospheric value seems enough to influence people perceptions. There is something about Rothko's work that someho reaches further than fuzzy blocks of colour, for me at least.

Yeah the locations a good, though the Tate is clearly set up in a way to facilitate Art display more than the more generic spavces of the former GLC buildings.

The first room of the Saatchi collection is rather dominated by Hirst (the segmented cow, the dead butterflies and the dead/living flies), I observed several people who couldn't stomach it walk straigh through.
The juxtaposition of some of the pieces I though was rather clever, but ultimately I viewed a lot of the art as sensationalist. There were some good pieces, notably Hirst's pharmaceutical pieces were much better than his more famous ones. The pretend dead mice also got some amusing reactions!!!
