Turner prize won by Susan Philipsz for a sound installation

The winner of this year's Turner prize has created nothing you can see or touch – not even the lights famously turning on and off, which was Martin Creed's winning turn in 2001. Susan Philipsz is the first person in the history of the award to have sculpted her prizewinning work in sound – indeed from the sound of her own frailly beautiful voice singing a Scottish lament over the black waters of the Clyde in her hometown, Glasgow.
