13/365: Crayon Art Part One. Got out of my media screening class last night feeling very artistic. We watched Exit Through The Gift Shop, the Banksy/Mr. Brainwash documentary since we are talking about media “fandom” this week. Mr. Brainwash is definitely a very odd form of Banksy fandom. We also talked about whether or not Mr. Brainwash’s “art” was considered art at all, since he had so many employees physically creating the artwork for him.
This lead right into my final paper topic for my From Beauty to the Abject seminar class. I just did a presentation on the “found” conceptual art of Duchamp and if his work is actually considered art either.
THIS lead into my Art History class this morning, where Duchamp’s Fountain was one of the pieces we talked about.
Having all of your classes overlap and relate to each other is the best feeling.
