John Baldessari Narr. by Tom Waits
After seeing this, I dug a little further on Baldessari and found this documentary on him (spoiler alert: it’s awful). But it turns out that Baldessari has dipped his toe in painting, photogrphy, video, and sculpture (and probably a few more mediums) which seems to be a common trait of ‘the greats.’ Oh, and the man has a damn iphone app out (what!).
Sifting through more info and works, I realized I really liked Baldessari’s approach and method on art, but I really don’t care for the actual work he’s done. Are you feelin’ it?
Peep the quick history on Baldessari, some of his work, and go make some whacky thing and call it ART. Just this morning I used my phone to make a video of me repeatedly standing up and sitting down in the shower for twenty minutes and every third stand up I’d shout “bike helmet boxes!!”
