Jesus, where to begin.
Low Mass —
"The video installation Low Mass is an aural-visual-visceral experience of uncanny surface tension between sacred and profane modes, in which commercial culture-products are repurposed as richly liturgical and even mystical vehicles.”
Nooooope. Oh, really, you slowed down a piece of pop culture - never seen that before. Not once. Not ever.The other work is pretty good though.
On another note: “polyartist | performer | writer | filmmaker | host/impresario”
Yeah, like this isn’t a big ol’ pile of shit.
Here is a perfect example of why this blog exists. Social Practice, is of course, a conservative conspiracy to make your average american hate funding art and line.plane.object are happy to help with that. Guys. Look at this. THIS IS YOUR PHOTO THAT YOU ARE TAKING OF YOUR WORK!!! LOOK AT THIS! IT IS SHITTY!!!!!!!
Can somebody please make something beautiful and/or interesting!?!?! Please?
Guys - we get it, you can pull data from things, and then program the date to play a preset type of sound. Can we quit pretending that there is inherent music in inanimate objects? This is actually quite dishonest to viewers, you know?
If you want to impress me - look inside and compose something beautiful - you’ll find it’s a lot harder than relying on controlled randomness.
"Artists Crystal Baxley and Stefan Ransom are inviting musicians and artists to each create a song inspired by one of Sol Lewitt’s Sentences on Conceptual Art. Chris Johanson’s record label Awesome Vistas and Marriage Records will be co-releasing a limited edition double record of the tracks titled 35 Songs on Conceptual Art, and all of the songs will be available to download on the project’s (forthcoming) website for free.”
Hey dogs? Putting together a comp might not be something you want to call art. I mean, I know some of ya’ll fuckers like to call brushing your teeth art and stuff - but this is weak sauce on blast. I mean, don’t you wonder if anyone take you seriously behind your back?
What do you do when you can’t think of anything to paint? You paint the motions your hand makes while using twitter on your phone. Yeah… nice work on that. You’re brilliant and stuff.
BTW: We love Evan’s TSA work - but we fucking loathe this lazy bullshit.
This was made by Damien Roach, who is an artist. But this isn’t art - it’s just a meme-able design piece (the “font” is avant garde). Designers love to think of themselves as artists, but they aren’t, they’re designers. Designers make useful things beautiful, artists make useless, but beautiful things. Oh well, at least this looks nice and kinda sorta has a conceptual underpinning.
So this kid Ryan Birkland own’s a gallery I never heard of and is behind this super shitty “street art.” He got arrested and the charges are pretty serious. I think we should let him off provided that, upon penalty of death, he is not allowed to spread anymore of this ugly, un-inspired, hideous bullshit.
