Absolute nonsense!

Post by Admiral Stoic Rum on Fri Nov 16, 2012 7:26 pm

Ladies, Gentlemen, Ponies, Bronies and Trolls alike!

I have made his thread, of pure inanity, because I have discovered the Equestrian wastes, but what one would consider waste, other can find treasure. I do not mean gold or jewels, or even things of any erstwhile value. No I mean true treasure, that gem people find in something which others would only find garbage. Can we truly afford overlook such priceless artifacts ?

It is up to the individual really. there was a story once, people call it the "Found Art" story. It really is a terrible attempt at redemption if filling an empty gallery. Charge others and sell of the refuse of another should feel appalling should the buyer know the object of his affections was nothing more than the refuse pulled from a dumpster out back. This story runs along those lines. An artist and exhibitor were preparing their gallery and had but minutes to fill an empty location. You see in arrogance, the artist had shortened his display, in panic, he ran to the back of the showing venue, there he found an old toilet. He promptly labeled it "Found Art" as he put it on display.

Were I the manufacturer or designer of said toilet, I would be appalled. Such an action screams lawsuit.

This is merely an opinion.

A real head-scratcher, could such things really fall under such a category as art? I am sure if you were looking hard and trying to force a connection, yes. Then again, I think one more thing. An Art Major was doing a piece for a final/ art competition. Her roommate took the same class. During the period where the assignment was given and the final was to take place, the Major worked hard and diligently to make her work. Her roommate would party hard and play frolicking through the good days, believing she had time. It was the day before the final entries were due. The Major had finished her work, satisfied with how well it would do. Her roommate was panicking, she had done nothing!. in her panic, she took pepto bismol pink paint and ran a drenched brush across the canvas. leaving a corner in the upper left unpainted, it was not solid, nor was it dripping. This was what she entered for the final. At the presentation, the Teacher teared up upon seeing the Pink pepto smear and awarded her painting first place.

The moral of this story is that Modern art is BULLSHIT!

An acquaintance was talking about how modern art is trash with one of my friends a few days ago, actually. Like a painting of soup cans.

Then again, you have to define what you understand as "modern art". I (hope I) know what you mean, but some may disagree with the term, because it can be kinda wide-ranged.

However, I agree that no matter how you name this specific type of "art", it's mostly bullshit. I mean, yeah, you could say it's abstract or something and has some deep idea author intended, but take away this supposed idea and you're usually left with nonsensical colorful mess.
I'm not saying that art shouldn't have any deeper meaning to it, not at all. but it shouldn't rely solely on it and aside from it it should have some artistic value of its own. Something you can simply look at and enjoy without struggling to comprehend what the hell you're even looking at. Twilight crazy

That's why I stick with sites like DeviantArt, because even if there's some weird stuff too on them, they each have much more artistic value than all modern-art museums combined can even dream of. Big mac
