Sitting on the "Tois"-let

Check out this this Roger Andersson toilet. Is it a piece of crap? Or nothing to piss at? Who cares? The point here is I want one.

Oh goody, it's another quiz!!It is fairly easy to spot which is art and which is Walmart furniture, but I am entertained with the humor. It is pretty amazing how Modernism is what contemporary furniture looks like. I wonder what mainstream will look like in another 50 years. Personally, I am getting tired of all the clean lines and the photoshoped, graphic aesthetic. Maybe it is because a 10 year old with a paint program could make most of those designs and a 10 year old did make that cheap, Modernist furniture. Not that there is anything wrong with children getting immersed in the arts at a young age. I guess that we all owe Walmart thanks for making art accessible to everyone, regardless of age and socioeconomic status. http://reverent.org/donald_judd_or_cheap_furniture.html

Clear Your Desks, It's Time for a POP QUIZ

My butt got kicked. I am really embarrassed. I blame public education.

See how you do: http://reverent.org/true_art_or_fake_art.html

So Art is the Oldest Profession?

I heart you Maryland. It is where I grew up and a girl couldn't ask for more. There was always some drama (thank you Marion Berry) and now I am proud to say that art has entered the lime light.

For those of you who have not already heard (sorry for not jumping on this sooner but it takes a while for news to trickle out here to the West Coast) ACORN's Baltimore branch got in the news for giving tax advice to pimps and prostitutes with special provisions to child trafficking for sexual exploitation. But is this legal? Sure, if you are a performance artist, which is what our undercover pro was told to describe herself as. Brilliant. Seriously though, it is only a matter of time before someone turns prostitute for art; this would be on the street corner and not in the galleries or schools, mind you. I am predicting sometime in the next year. Or is it not shocking enough? What if you were a prostitute dressed up like the Statue of Liberty? Or like a hamster? No, a spork!!

Do you like kittens? If yes, check out my now famous one-eyed cat. If no, then you may need to re-evaluate your life.

Building Hair-odynamics


This was going to be my senior thesis...
I know this was not made as art outright (more in the craft category), but I think the basic idea fits well into many process, time lapse, and conceptual art practices. Although I guess it counts as fiber art, right?
