Observations on Art 5.22

There are a few reasons I studied art history and didn't get a fine arts degree. The one I've always mentioned is that I think there are too many rules when you study fine arts. This video shows another. Maybe Hyperallergic is right and perhaps "we've been had, and this is some high-concept work masquerading as viral fodder." If that is the case we can debate whether or not the video itself is art. Whatever the video's authenticity I can relate because I've been known react to criticism in much the same way. However with me the criticism is usually my own and I could never bring myself to use the dreaded 'fashion designer' line.

A slight warning is called for, you may want to turn down the volume.
