Modern Art

Let it be known here and now that I dislike a good majority of modern art.  Somewhere down the road art got so conceptual, pretentious, and high-minded that it became so stuffed with meaning that it lost all meaning.

There’s a lot of really cool modern art, especially in scuplture.  Frank Stella’s painting apply a neat sense of geometry that appeals to me.  But there’s a lot of real stupid stuff, too.  I’m going against everything that art school ever preached at me from over the top of their wine glasses, but I’m not a big fan of Jackson Pollock.

These pieces here arose out of an accident.  There is no meaning, there is no symbolism.  They were created by a computer, with human assistance, and I thought they “looked cool”.  The geometric shapes, the lines, all of them were produced without thought or contemplation.

If you can figure out what program these were made in, I’ll give you a dollar. (maybe)
