It was completely great meeting Joel again! I just realized I never mentioned his name, haha.

But he's my art buddy, Brad's pretty ok to talk to about art. He doesn't quite get it so most of the time it's just him listening but I can actually discuss shit with Joel.

We never really hung out outside of class but he really did motivate me to work a lot.

The one thing I do miss about college is access to studio space so we can just dick around for an entire day, haha. I should draw about it except there's not much interesting to draw about the art process, haha.

I guess I should tell you guys. Brad and I didn't spend the full four years of college together, Brad transferred to a college an hour away, UVA, to do architecture so we got an apartment about halfway and the two of us commuted. So Brad and Joel here were my college friends.

Also, that fucking guy was the fucking worst at art and he made up for his lack of talent but fucking smooth talking his fucking way out of work. We had a digital to analog class which explored the process of combining the two since artists tend to focus only one way or the other. For one of his project the kid uploaded a video online and said that was his fucking project.

Piece of fucking shit. Pretty much the worst goddamned artist I've ever had the courtesy of meeting.

Speaking of fine arts, do you guys know Jack Ass? The movie and shit? That actually started off as a fine arts piece and was even viewed at... some fucking gallery. I'd talk to you more about it but I've already talked too much, haha.

Aw man; now I miss the old studios at school. Not necessarily the people that went with them, but still.

BSing seemed like a chief staple when I took classes. I honestly think some of the students spent more time explaining their work than actually plan or work on it, but who am I to judge? Haha.

I actually didn't know about that for that movie. I remember watching television episodes and getting annoyed by it, along with other shows on whatever channel it featured on... I guess I have a low tolerance for certain shows. Do you know what gallery it was shown at?

@daviddoesntgetit: Art friends are the best, simply because they understand you even when you can not find the right words to express yourself. hahaha.

AND MAN! Those kind of guys are everywhere huh?

We had this one guy...
He ended up being the project-manager of one group.
He was so bad that they kicked him out.
- normaly it is the job of the manager to kick others out-
BUT! with his smooth talking he earned more points then the group that did all the work.
UGH! I still get worked up thinking about it.

And no... I never knew that.
That is as interesting as disturbing I guess.
I can just picture those art-critques squinting at the screen and saying stuff like.

"The way he fell over that bench right there, it portrais the insecurity of young people nowadays wouldn't you say?"

-oh my this comment got quite long, sorry 'bout that!-

@hyeonmu: Haha, I ended up not seeing a lot of people at the studios but yeah, I remember... not liking a lot of people.

I've noticed with good work and the message is clear, the teacher will even step in sometimes and have them stop saying anything because that's a sign the work stands on its own and ends up being successful.

I dunno if I saw a lot of BS'er, I know there were a lot of people who constantly defended their work.

No, I don't remember the gallery, if I did, I would have mentioned it. Haha. Was it MoMA? Who knows.

@MilkChii: Haha, I don't think that's a talent specific to art friends.

Man, that guy sounds like a fucking scumbug. He's basically a perfect business person though, haha.

While I agree with you that art critiques are a lot of bullshit spouters, I don't really think people view art as only symbolic anymore, haha.

It's uh, how do I explain it. I think my entire view on art was changed in high school when we watched a video on modern art and the nun said simply, "Abstract art is an experience." If you stop trying to look at things like it's supposed to have meaning, which abstract art wasn't supposed to do, you see it as just a unique thing in this world. It doesn't have any relation to the world, it's just this object and it's just you and it and it's completely different from anything you've seen.

I think the best way to describe how Jackass is an art piece...

If you read Cracked, they have this article series of images you won't believe aren't photoshopped, and a lot of them are actually art pieces that are meant to be a mind fuck, haha. Or, as Connor says, trying to be clever. Like this piece where this guy built a house on the corner of a building and it just looks like it's balancing.

Or, actually. The perfect example might be Mike Mill, or something. Mike something, he's a DC artist and he makes humanoid sculptures and dress them up. So you can be walking around DC and there's this wall and it looks like someone is stuck halfway in the wall. Or he puts a sculpture in a pond and it looks like a guy fell in while tied to some balloons, like he got popped out of the sky.

So not only do these sculptures exist, but he also filmed it and the documentation is actually all just reaction shows of people going, "WHAT THE FUCK."

That's Jackass. Haha. It's like a clever visual joke and the fun of it is people's reaction.

I don't watch Jackass but I understand that aspect. The pieces they made before Jackass are pretty interesting, haha.

@daviddoesntgetit: Your explanation of Jackass is very neat. I never tried to look at it that way. But it makes sense. A lot of sense.

I just can't watch Jackass, the things they do are too painful to look at. Gives me goosebumps.


daviddoesntgetit April 13th, 2013, 5:16 pm

@Guest: Ah, I'm glad it made sense. I was worried nothing I said was making sense, haha.

I also cannot watch Jackass in the same way I just can't watch Saw. Just... guh. Hahaha.
