Art Lesson: Theft
also know as collage.
not to be mistaken for college...
(what expecting some sardonic remark about education?)
(Ha. I twist I turn I make you look left while I go right.)
(now do you think I'm going to go on about how artistic collage is?)
(got you I feign left, then right...)
(It's September shouldn't it be getting cold?)
what is collage? Taking other peoples work, like photos and drawings and words, cutting them up, re arranging them and saying, "ta da, look what I made." I made the same thing in kindergarten but even then I had the morals not to make money off someone else's work. That is called cheating and you get put in the corner with a dunce cap on if you do that. If you had and real artistic talent you would draw/paint by hand the exact same collection of images. Maybe I'd give you a little more credit although it still is taking someone else's idea.
"Hi mister, ford"
"Say did I tell you about this idea I had for mass producing things? You make a line and along the line you got your workers,see and they put on the little bits and pieces as the product moves forward along the line. All the workers have to do is concentrate on knowing how to put that one part onto the big part, cuts down on training and capitalizes on efficiency."
"Golly, gee mister ford you sure are smart."
"Thanks, Sam. See you around."
"Holy shit I have to get on this first!"
Have I gotten my point across?
and that's what I call crap.
my second argument against collage and it's disharmony of style, colors and fonts.
is is making sense of the senseless? A picture in chaos? A collaboration of minds who would never meet? Or just plain old shitty craftsmanship.
