Romain Jerome Titanic DNA (by André Chéca) "Melty Face Watch"​
According to the artist, the watch is meant to appear like the "tortured" pieces of metal that lay thousands of feet underwater being corroded and abused by the elements. That proves one or two of three possibilities: you can't discuss art (only lament it) or I'm blind to art (questionable but not impossible) and that the author doesn't have the foggiest idea of what metal should look like after years in thousands of feet underwater being corroded and abused by the elements at the bottom of the see. And to add insult to injury that piece of cr..., erhm, art, has a case of 72 mm.

That has got to be one of the best saying I've ever heard. Classic and Oh so true. :D

Re: NOT for the week of stomach - open with barf bag at hand

It's not like I'm an ogre and just can't see the beauty in a lot of "artsy" stuff, or arts that are not classical, but come on, that looks like something that came out of my nose. Where is the "art" in there? If art is supposed to be the materialization of what the artist sees or perceives at that moment or about some subject, does that mean that the guy was having the runs and sever abdominal cramps when he came up with that thing? Or was he thinking about screaming sailors while drowning when their ship goes down?


This is one of those "art" pieces that look like they were made just to shock, not to make the viewer think or reflect. In other words, for people to buy it just because it's so outrageous and they don't have anything else better to do with their money.

LOL, thanks for posting this. I'm pretty immune to "art", and I don't like this, too...


I'll show this to my girlfriend next time she tells me my Aqualand is too big and too ugly, haha.

Art to me is what appeals to the visual sense, if it fails to entice the eyes, no amount of explanation will make me like it.


This does not appeal...

Re: NOT for the week of stomach - open with barf bag at hand

I was thinking of writing instead "like something that came out of my third eye", but being honest, I proudly have made some more memorable turds in the past.
More specifically, last winter me and the wife went for Mexican and the jalapeño chili was specially fantastic. The next morning was memorable.

The worse part of this is not that that "art" was made, but that somebody will pay good and legit (!!) money for it :-[ .

Thanks for the warning. That is one of the most disgusting thing ( I refuse to call it a watch) I have ever seen. It has nothing to do with art, it's just an ugly unidentified object (UUO).

This is a true story:

When I was around seven (that was in '77), we were visiting NY and we went to the MOMA. Coincidentally, on that afternoon was opening a exhibition on Picasso's works, so you can imagine the museum was pretty packed. My parents (specially my mom), were beaming about our good fortune of catching that exhibit, something that we hadn't planned at all. So off we went, my parents, me and my two sisters, to the (looooong) line of people waiting to have a chance of seeing old Pablo's works.

Being only seven, after about 45 minutes standing in line I was pretty much fed up with Picasso, cubism, impressionism or any other form of ism and was dieing to get out of there and actually seeing something rather then other people's butts (remember, I was seven). Finally, we managed to get into the gallery where all those treasures were hidden. And yes, to the seven year old me they had to be treasures out of this world, after all, I had endured over 45 minutes in that bloody line.

I got into the gallery and started looking at the paintings. Immediately, and to the utmost embarrassment of my parents , in a very loud voice I asked "We were in that line to see THIS?!? I can paint better then that!!!!". Even though the whole gallery started laughing, specially the two security guards at the door, my mom got very red and I got one of those looks from her that made me think I-bet-that-if-I-wasn't-her-son-she'll-kill-me. That story is still recounted in my family gatherings specially if someone wants to remind me that I'm really not all that that I think of myself ::) .

The point is, art is utterly stupid. It's something that you need a "higher intellect" to comprehend and find beautiful. In my very honest opinion, if something is only beautiful after you explained it, it really ain't that pretty.
So ok, call me an ogre, but art is stupid. And downright silly.
