What is Art?

Here is a question for you: What is Art?

Here in today’s modern world we have a new form of art, a form of art that deals in abstract concepts and clever satire delivered in a visual presentation that has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH ANYTHING.

Piss in a cup with George W. Bush’s head printed on it, attach lightbulbs to the heads of mannequins as eyes and cover their faces in oil and pose them with blood-stained American flags with George W. Bush’s face replacing all the stars, drill a hole through the middle of a hard-drive and attach it to a model ship as an anchor with a tiny little model of George W. Bush in the crows nest with a big hat. Woo, I just won the fucking Turner Prize.

Anyway…

In other news I am quitting University hooray! The current education system is geared toward sending nearly everyone into University, and the fact of the matter is, most people just aren’t really ready for the responsibility and are mostly in it for the booze and sex and not having to grow up for a few years. I was deluding myself for months, telling myself I could get through it all, that there was in fact a light at the end of the tunnel. And then I realised the tunnel was a toilet roll tube and I cut my way out of the side with a penknife.

Looks like I’ll be doing something radically different in the near future, including, shock horror, actual employment.
