This is an image of a piece of ‘art’ created by Michel de Broin for an exhibit in Montreal.
I am not impressed.
Since I know nothing of art I cannot comment on what this is supposed to mean. It really doesn’t ‘speak’ to me, like some folks who know art can identify with.
Since I know nothing of art I cannot see how this relates to anything other than a monument to someone’s boredom. Ahhhh, now boredom — that’s something of which I know about!
This is what you can do with a fair bit of boredom:
This is a creation constructed by several two physics students a couple of years ago while I was out to lunch.
Difficulty factor? Not having pre-ordered, perfectly matching, factory-direct, single-style chairs. That’s right, try this with a room full of student-used, bent-legged, top-busted, school desks and then add to that some teacher-engineered, student-mutilated, multi-styled, various-sized, lab stools and get them to stay put long enough for an entire class of physics students to play bounce-and-catch with a sack full of golf balls through the mess for over an hour!!! Now that’s boredom!
Or maybe art. I dunno.
