Definitely, they are beautiful.
I wouldn't call the Photoshop gradients democratic, and certainly not 'Internet' in a good way. Their name allows you to replicate them, but they are inherently contradictory in that they are extremely large and expensive C-Prints which negates their democratic proccess (which clearly Arcangel intended, flossing his Pro Tools aka budget). Also, much like the rest of the show they come off as a really bad art history joke/reference that adds little beyond the 'oh I see what you did there' moment.
Well played sir.
I should re-phrase my comment to: There is no way to justify this.
I second this. There is ZERO justification.
