Brush-off


Yea, I probably could have been more specific with the unicorn landscapes, hackerism, and one trick pony art boing boing posts as "art pablum". Proops bothers me because his painting actually seems to be going from awful to even more awful. "Painting Downloading: Please wait, is pretty facile, but "humorously" censoring the genitals of a classical painting, or whatever else he's interested in as a means of social commentary, is utterly infantile.

Out of Office AutoReply


Certainly there are examples of multiple takes on projects where the development is meaningful, but it seems to me the rate at which Apple turns out new computers was implicit in using the older computers. The screens to me seem the most successful iteration of that project because it helps to minimize the conversation about the sale of the computer and the art, which is undoubtedly the least engaging aspect of the work.
