Title: no you're the other media, how 'bout that (sips iced tea) [21st century art]
Post by: jenkins on April 24, 2015, 07:46:53 PM
earlier today i was looking at the book The 21st-Century Art Book (http://www.amazon.com/21st-Century-Book-Editors-Phaidon-Press/dp/071486739X/) while thinking "yeah if you're so artistic and everything 21st century you better prove it, you better" and whatnot. there's so much art out there in the world but it's easier to not care about art, so today i cared a li'l and learned about people, which i enjoyed doing

this topic is for discussing such things

anselm reyle does whatever this is, nice:

i'm not a videogame person as far as the possibility for being a videogame person goes, but i appreciate that feng mengbo made a giant fucking videogame art piece:

marcelo cidade maybe this is slightly less fun but nah it's gotta be fun, and it does this art thing where i look at it and i'm like "this is stupid" then "no i love it" then "no it's stupid and i love it" then "sorry i called it stupid, i do love it" then "anyone want pizza?"
