Well, there's one way to create "philosophical art" without any effort, unless you consider staring on and off at a white board for 40 days a difficult task.

I've suffered an internal injury caused by laughing, after I read all the posts and enjoyed the very art and its meaning... lololololol
I think it would be fitting to held an invisible press conference to comemorate this milestone event. After that the invisible journalists would publish their invisible reports in their invisible journals. If all this would not set fire the imagination of their invisible readers then I don't know what would!
"Astronomy offers an aesthetic indulgence not duplicated in any other field. This is not an academic or hypothetical attraction and should require no apologies, for the beauty to be found in the skies has been universally appreciated for unrecorded centuries."
this is stupid as hell.

The thread is valid in this person was exposing us to something that is happening in the art world. And asking for opinions. I for one commend the originator. When a joke goes vile, then it shows the characters of those keeping it that way.....And there is a lot to be said for being sophmoric.....
Its not the creators' of the gallery and its amazing art pieces that are at fault; it's the people that buy tickets/waste their time to go to these expositions who are being dumb.
There was a worse exhibit earlier. It was some project backed my James Franco where people made invisible art but there was nothing tangible at all about the piece other then the name and description tag. One lady in Canada bought a 10,000$ rip-off from them.
The great news is that it mathematically simply can't get worse then this.

Sketchbook! Me vs Anatomy (and other things)
I'm disappointed to not have thought of it first.
I self-published a book on the fundamentals of drawing from life.
The one thing that gives me a bit of sanity is knowing that if i were to put this in a time machine and bring it 1000, or 2000 years in the future and tell the future people this is art, they'd probably still have the same reaction we're all having right now.
"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."

Noone in that exhibition is making millions, the safe assumption would be that it will end quietly with a couple pieces sold for some modest amount that is meant for the artist rather than the work itself and the only real impact it will have on anything is stirring up a couple thousand "Has the world gone nuts" chain e-mails by boring people and headshaking from reactionaries like the artrenewal.org guy
Yeah, that's true it's probably not making them a ton of money. Still I feel like these sorts of things have a big part to play in the whole "Fries with that" treatment you get stuck with.
Well i read the article didn't think it was very good. I just couldn't see the attraction of this exibition.
This artist has truly learned how to draw the unseen ear. Loomis would be proud.
And then God said, "Let us make man in our likeness and our image. Let us make him ridiculously hard to draw so that poor artists everywhere will have to spend 10,000+ hours failing repeatedly before they can begin to capture the form and likeness onto a two-dimensional surface." And there was man. And it was good. And artists everywhere lost their minds.
Aw, when I saw the title I was hoping this thread was going to be about matte painting
Glow in the dark paint/blue light paint that can only be seen in the dark or under UV light?
Ever just woken up and gone "shit, does the world around me exist"?
