Fromabox: Did `anyone` read the captions?! These aren`t `copy and paste`...they are pics of full-sized works - several feet each. Prob a bit more impressive in person, but certainly not a 2 minute photoshop hack. Im just sayin`...

"Archival inkjet, 12 feet tall by 7 feet wide in two panels" - On the SUV Caption

I`m pretty sure they did copy and paste on a computer on some of them...they just printed it out on really big paper. I do agree though copy paste or not it would be impressive in person.

dumaspere:copy paste can be art. isn`t it the message not the medium that`s important?
/still thinks most modern art is poo

good point.

really at first i thought this would be boring.

and in supersize me, he eats only at fastfood restaurants for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and if they ask him if he wants supersize (JESUS CHRIST ALOT COUNTRIES HAVE ONLY LARGE LET ALONE SUPERSIZE) hes gotta say yes. he gained BIG TIME like 10 kilos or something in the first week. its a sick reality.

that sucks. all they did was darken some areas. a bunch of white dots dont make up a picture, neither will a bunch of the same 100 dollar bills.

A good idea but has no impact at all really when you know its all been done with a mouse. Imagine seeing those prison uniforms in a real huge pile. Now THAT would be impressive.

if you actually go out and watch super-size me,which i suggest you do, it makes some good arguments. also, while youre at it, get the book, "Natural Cures: They dont want you to know about" by kevin trudeaux.

in supersize me he tells how the food makes him feel like he needs more of it later in the day. trudeaux goes on to explain that the chemist that actually help create the food, put in chemicals that make you want to keep going and getting more. i really is drugs they are putting into you, and its like taking crack from a crack addict, he is going to go crazy. if you go eat fast food all the time, go 2 weeks without getting it and just see how much weight you lose, how much better you feel in the morning, and how much energy you have. because if you are a college student, eating out is more expensive than cooking in the long run.

Art is in the eye of the beholder. I found these statistics along with the illustrations make a very bold statement, at least to me.

^ Ah, but the culture that shows unhealthy eating habits is also to blame. If you`re conditioned from childhood to think that is the right way to eat (like all the McD`s commercials that advertise their food as healthy, and yes, I could name examples), then it`s much harder to fight. It`s much like an addiction.

(No, if you`re wondering, I don`t eat fast food.)

blame fast food all you want
but it`s the people that eat it
if they ate it in moderation, it wouldn`t
be an issue.

Maples: Yeah, it`s true. Declining test scores, rising deficit, and fast food is making the USA a sesspool.

This has inspired me to look into getting started in the valve cap business. Either that, or making prison uniforms. :-?
