When people run out of ideas, they do crazy things. When pressed for an explanation they say its art. Consider this:
A group of young people sitting on a chair with dough over their heads.
The artist who came up with this idea say its art. But if its art then what is not art? To an artistically untrained eye, this looks more like a situation where the artist in question ran out of ideas to get publicity and cleverly fooled the local art gallery to host a period of madness. With so much hunger and poverty around the world, the dough that went over the heads of the brainless models could have been used to feed a few starving kids somewhere!
This is also not a local situation. Everywhere around the world people are falling in to these gimmicks of vanity and doing crazy things in the name of art. When challenged they will readily explode defending their ‘art’ with the determined zeal of the worst religious fanatic.
The emperor without cloth comes to mind. People undress in public places in their hundreds and thousands for a photographer to take their pic in the name of art! Imagine the cost of preparation of the whole project, the transportation of people, licenses, rent and so many expenses that go along with it; money that was burnt for vanity. Think why the world is hungry…
