Could someone please contact me and tell me what the point of 'Art' is please.

The problems of fragmentation and confusion that exist within more traditional art practices, such as painting and sculpture (in the broadest possible milieu) are mirrored in new art practices. Within these technological and new media categories, diverse concepts and imagery has been lumped together to form a hodgepodge of non-related methodologies and artworks.

What is this direction?

The meshing together of processes, unrelated imagery and the breaking down of barriers cannot be seen as a shortcut to intellectual credibility. The dedicated thought process that goes with the creative procedure should be one of intense reasoning. It is therefore unrealistic to expect the uneducated masses to use the computers prescriptive decision making to create ‘real art’. The birth of Photoshop has enabled everybody to create ‘non-intellectual’ versions of Rauschenberg (and Warhol) – this is not ART.

You are right but sometimes you just have to ask the question "What is (art) it all about?"

After the stuttering you come to the conclusion that it doesn't really matter what the point is, doing is the main thing and life is actually not bad at all.

PHEW!

I"ll come right out and say it: I prefer wanking to death.

Comment by De Villo Sloan on October 28, 2012 at 9:14pm

You've been wanking for hours with your art bullshit. When do we get a turn?

Comment by De Villo Sloan on October 28, 2012 at 9:12pm

Sure. I said : Where's the webcam? You can do that.

Comment by This Window on October 28, 2012 at 9:12pm

Why do you want to wank?

Comment by De Villo Sloan on October 28, 2012 at 9:11pm

Face it. You f--ed up your life. Now do the right thing - for once.
