2/4/2003: Bird crap art
Griff Tuesday Feb 4 01:47 PM
How about a little computer art? This is Swarm music which was developed by Tim Blackwell using the simple rules he observed in bee swarms or a bird flocks to set the rules for his computer model.

It may not be tongue in cheek but it's most certainly head up butt.

If you are running low on cash, and someone (with grant money to disburse) says 'come up with something ', is this what you get?

This really isn't that different from photography as an art form. The artistic part is picking the cool compositions out from all the crap...

The "Why Cats Paint" book and its companion, "Why Paint Cats" are satire themselves, BTW. Easily mistaken for being real, though. The "Why Paint Cats" pictures are strikingly cool. Almost made me sad that it wasn't real.

The Artist in Me
i guess by these standards, i produce a couple of works of art every day, and , on the hole[sic], i'm a very prolific artist indeed. i'm wondering if number one is also considered great art, or if it is just number two. If i could get a check everytime i pinched a loaf, i could afford to get some top of the line equipment. Maybe i could even take night vision pictures of my dook. i could probably make big time cash selling the originals rather than selling only prints. Is it worth more if i do it on someone's windshield? Are skids considered "studies" for more refined projects? Is being evocative the only standard for art? Is tickling someone art? Is leaving your toenail clippings out to gross out your wife art? i'm sure somewhere out there, someone thinks that it is. Maybe they're right.

I like this individual's skeptical and sarcastic attitude! Well stated!

I'm reminded of a quotation by Andy Warhol:

i just re-read my post. It sounds really angry, like i care about a thousand times more than i do. WOW, and i thought i was just another apathetic X-er. Is was meant to be more playful and less wrathful.

I didn't take it as angry at all...just a nicely sarcastic take on the weird and wooly world of art.

I think it's pretty cool...certainly no worse than some of Serrano's stuff.
