    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...

    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.

    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". ;)
