You can make art out of anything, right?

    I really don't get it, is there some kind of obscure art reference made here that I just don't understand? Or is it just pictures of 2 docked iPhones in silly positions, such a thin line between the 2 anyway :p

    Art is what the viewer makes of it. Anything in theory can be art as long as somebody recognizes it as such.

    The photos look more like porn then art.

    I guess porn is an art.

    So I've been told, but just because the artist says it's art doesn't mean I agree. That statement wasn't meant toward your work, I just remember reading in a thread about a certain giant inflatable pile of dog $#!+ being displayed as "art" a few months back.

    Your pictures look rather nice :)

    Nice Pics!

    It's art if you can get it into a gallery, print your pics in 16 by 20 and frame them. Then find a gallery. G'luck! The pics are pretty! Look for other artists who make similiar work. Read why they do it and compare to your ideas.

    Off the top of my head,,, these pictures represent the role technology plays in our complicated contemporary lives. They illustrate the complex and beautiful relationship we have with technology. A system that allows us to simplify our life, while complicating it with a need to navigate new gadgets and operating systems.... The absence of any human touch (wether it be brush strokes or the presence of a hand or human being) helps us see that technology in the absence of humans has a life unto itself. Ultimately, this tech can manage itself, without humans. We're screwed.

    That was EXACTLY the picture I had in my head when I read the title of this thread.

    The term "art" is thrown around so casually. Whatever. What is art? Who really cares?

    I'd say your photos of the ipods are photos of the ipods. And such.

    I quit calling my photography "art" awhile back. They are personal images. They are not used for commercial purposes. And they do show in galleries. Does that mean they're art? Who cares... the moment something is lofted into the air and proclaimed as "art" and then such, untouchable... that's the moment I start caring less.

    Art? Maybe......


    iPhone ad? Sure....


    To me "art'" is such a broad word, that I really only associate it with paintings and such.

    If i had to categorize this as something id say it's photography, Which to say that is a oxy moron because photography is a art. I think I'm just crazy though.

    Art or not, I just put a Best Skin Ever on my 16gb and it looks like a work of art to me:D

    Yes, that looks slightly better than an inflatable piece of $h17. ;)


    One person's art is another person's garbage. I don't care what people say is art. If I don't think it's art, it's not art to me, and no amount of talking is going to convince me so.
