because I'm an art major and I have to go through all this shit, too

: Nowadays I could shove a fork into a dead cow's eyeball and call it art.

: No, not art... that'd be "found object."

: Seriously, though... (well, first off... one of the first things they tell you in art school is... "art is no longer made for the masses... it's made for a small group of 'in' folks who 'get it' so don't worry about everyone else. I shit you not, that's what they said.)

: Secondly... more seriously though... the difference between someone just sticking a fork in a cow eye and the artist with fish in a blender is "intention", "communication" and clarity of those two. Those are what makes the difference between good art and bad art: What was the artist's statement? Did they get it across? And did they get it across successfully... Anyway... they teach you this shit in art school... but I quit, so I don't really know anything.
