Just because you CAN make a gif doesn’t mean you SHOULD make a gif.
Also this looks terrible.
NY PBS Creates Ads With Fake Reality Shows | EW
I’d totally watch Knitting Wars…
Way to be judgey PBS.
It’s not like we’re living in the modern golden age of scripted TV or anything. Let’s just forget Mad Men, Walking Dead, Hannibal, Elementary, Game of Thrones, and dozens more. Too bad you think some cheap reality shows taint the best state TV has been in decades…
I… I think neeeed a haircut
this is art. this is a work. of contemporary art. being exhibited at the los angeles museum of contemporary art. the title is “long haired cheese”. this is art. i couldn’t make this shit up if i tried.
If the purpose of art is to elicit emotion then I would call that successful, no matter how absurd.
I agree that art’s purpose is to elicit emotion, but then I wonder where we draw the line—if the endless junk all over my room that I have yet to clean up counts because it elicits anxiety when I see it? Does whatever it is need to be clearly on display somehow (in a museum, on a wall visible to many, etc) in order for it to qualify as art? I don’t know, I’m being pretentious, but I don’t know how else to respond to nasty-looking hair on nasty-looking cheese.
The question you’re proposing is at the very heart of all modern and abstract art. To me it doesn’t have to be in a gallery to be art, there’s art, beauty and emotion in pretty much everything around you if you’re willing to see it. I mean you could be glib and hold up your shoe and say “this is art” but then yeah you’d be missing the point.
This cheese with hair is gross, of course it is, but it’s gross in a really strange and specific way isn’t it? People get grossed out when there’s hair in their food, even though it’s unlikely that a small hair is going to horribly taint their food it’s still gross. And now we have this, taken to the next level where it’s not just hair in the food it’s the food growing hair. Not to mention that cheese is pretty gross on its own to some people (how many foods can you think of that sweat?). I think we’re all sharing the same emotion about how a cheese growing hair makes us feel. That strange but specific ick connects us in a profound way. What more can you ask of art but to connect us to the same feeling, even if that feeling is revulsion?
Thanks Joe. I wanted to reply to this but I couldn’t figure out how to word it. A lot of the time when you see pieces like this the idea IS that they are gross and stupid, and the “art” - the intent behind it - is not just your reaction to it and the way you interact with it, but WHY you find it gross. This actually reminds me a lot about the concept of matter out of place. This stupid-looking hairy-ass cheese actually DOES say a lot about our culture and I’m not just parroting that to be pretentious and snobby. We think hair is gross if it becomes detached from our bodies. Why? It’s harmless??? Food suddenly become inedible if hair touches it? And “cheese” becomes a really gross word if you use it in any context other than food. Think about the word being used to describe something coming from your body. It’s instantly gross. But the connotation is with food. Why THIS food? Why hair? What happens if we take two things out of their “proper” place and combine them in an unnatural way? Everyone freaks the fuck out and says its disgusting/hilarious/stupid. You did exactly what the artist intended.

The name of this is “Fountain”. Ummm, it’s just a urinal with some dude’s name on it? This is. art. in a museum. you can’t make this shit up if you tried.
