    down the road, that's where i'll always be
    hah, awesome. of course the artist will probably love that too, the way his work represents art's fragility :rolleyes: i'm sorry but i just cannot see the "art" in this. :)

    Surely it would have saved everyone a lot of bother if the 'artist' concerned had just got the council to come 'round and take his rubbish away? I've got a pile of crap in my back yard that Tate Modern can have a look at if they fancy...

    Its not so much where you are as when you are.
    I think that it was hauled away as garbage is in many ways a more powerful and accurate statement than the original was. Better indicative of the nature of society.

    I live in a giant bucket!
    It would have been funny if the janitor knew exactly what he was doing. He just thought it sucked. :p

    Exactly! ;) I've never understood "Art" from the Tate Modern, myself, but it has a lot of entertainment value, nonetheless.

    I remember that pile of rocks that sat beside one of Monet's Waterlily paintings. It was just a big pile of rocks roped off by a tiny rope.

    Construction Worker: "Hey, look everybody. I'm an artist!!"

    Mistake, or more sense than most of these "artists". ;)
