    I`d say that was interesting, but lets just keep hating what we don`t understand. I say we because i dont understand it either. If he`s worth anything as an artist he knows what hes doing. People like handys003 are a sad bunch... im going to be in debt and unsuccessful probably and poor all of my life because of art... and at the end of my life ill be happy and hopefully living well and not having to be on some website promoting hate towards creativity and really the very freedom to do that... the bullpoo that he just did. If anything it represents that, the lack of care for your bullpoo money and the fact that we are greedy money hoarding monkeys with a huge case of the self-righteous-fcuktardism. :-)

    That:
    A) Made no sense
    and
    B) Was a f**king bullsh*t excuse for art.
    The next person to say anything supporting this waste of time probably also thinks Jackson Pollock had technical talent. I challenge you to come up with what the f**k this could be a reasonable metaphor for. People like this are the reason that most artists aren`t taken seriously. I really hope people don`t buy into this "modern art" crap and make this guy successful. I also really hope that he has some kind of actual talent aside from being able to get the hipster style of dress down flat. GUHHHHH IT`S LIKE TWILIGHT FOR HIPSTERS

    Alright BountyKat, I don`t like Jackson Pollock. I`m a painter, and I don`t think he`s a painter. However, ignoring the symbolism they were trying to convey in this piece would be like ignoring the relevance of color in Vertigo. You could do it, but you`d be stupid for it, and anyone who knew anything about movies would cry. Yes, the guy is a lumberjack. He was cutting down a structure made of paper. They main colors were red. A soft song about SUNSHINE played in the background. You`re not picking up any connections at all? Not even dramatic irony? Keep in mind that this is college art. These kids aren`t professionals, but you`re trying not to see the point if you cant see it.
