Hi loveliest friends and followers! So it's down the the wire at school and I have to get my act in gear. I am pretty bummed about the art work that I chose for my final presentation in my Art Since 1970's class. It's on this 65 min video (killllll me!!!) made by the artist Simon Leung and his work is full of, for lack of better words, weird sh*t. When I say weird sh*t I mean actors assuming odd/creepy poses while green-screened against swirling psychedelic shots of random landscapes, found objects, while strange echoey-screaming audio loops in the background. Awesome.
I guess I should have known better than to choose a video attempting to link Edgar Allan Poe with Robert Smithson. Gag me.
I hate to sound so negative but it's been really difficult for me, after a semester long of studying classical art, to look at works done by some, in my humble opinion, major douches. I'm pretty sure that da Vinci, Massacio, Ghiberti and Donatello are all turning over in their graves when they look down from artsy heaven and see these self obsessed pricks calling their creations 'art.'
Now please don't send me any hate mail if you're into this stuff i.e. earthworks, performance art, etc. I don't think I'll ever be convinced that this stuff is 'groundbreaking' or in the slightest bit cool.
Anyhow, sorry for the rant. Do you all remember the cute floral bed cardigan that I wore a few posts back? Well these are the matching pants that came with it. I really, really love their flowy comfiness. Only thing is that they are slightly sheer so I have to make sure the privates are fully concealed...unless I'm feeling really flirty.
