Wild&Crazy Art #2: Martin Creed

Martin Creed (16 January 2008) from Slade on Vimeo.

(from Wikipedia)
 Creed is perhaps best known for his submission for the 2001 Turner Prize show at the Tate Gallery, Work No. 227, the lights going on and off, which won that year's prize. The artwork presented was an empty room in which the lights periodically switched on and off. As so often with the Turner Prize, this created a great deal of press attention, most of it questioning whether something as minimalist as this could be considered art at all. Artist Jacqueline Crofton threw eggs at the walls of Creed's empty room as a protest against the prize, declaring that Creed's presentations were not real art and that "painting is in danger of becoming an extinct skill in this country".[1] In 2006 Martin Creed presented an extensive exhibition with sculptures, videos and performances titled I Like Things with Nicola Trussardi Foundation in Milan.

Hey! Watch this vid for an entertaining lunch break...

So, what do you think? Should the painter of "The Singing Butler" be recognized by the Art Establishment, or is the job of the Art Establishment to only present challenges to the public? And are these paintings good, or really just schlock, on par with big eyed crying children art?

Haloscan is gone, Echo is going

by John at 3/12/2010 07:11:00 PM

Well, the old Haloscan commenting system is gone, replaced temporarily by Echo, a new commenting system that would cost $12 a year if I wanted to pay. But I don't, so it will expire and stop working on 3/21.

All the old Haloscan comments will then disappear from the blog. But they are not gone - I have archived them all! However, there is currently (and likely never will be) an easy way to import them into Blogger comments, so they will remain unreadable on the blog.

For future comments, the Blogger commenting system should be working on new posts (at least). Thanks!

...As seen today on Wikipedia:

What do you think, folks? Is this something you'd play?
It's kinda interesting, the use of video games for meditation and emotional therapy.
