Grables'Daughter: FloydA: Grables'Daughter: Amos Quito: Do women's restrooms really have sofas?

And beds.

Go on...

It takes us so long because we are having sexy sex with each other every time we go.

Every.

Time.


That image just made me vomit in my mouth a little

thecpt: busy chillin': pottie: someguy945: pottie: Pssst... this is not art.

The purpose of art is to evoke a response from an observer. You may not consider it art, but you cannot deny that it will accomplish the goal.

So, I could, by that definition, commit some heinous act in front of an audience and call it art? I'm not buying that definition, but I will concede it does evoke a response.

Of course you could. It won't stand up as a defense in court, but...it would be art. Art is just an intention. Many Farkers hate that stuff, but that's it. Sh*t in a box? Art.

Now selling it, getting people to give a sh*t, and see believe your point of view is the hard part.

/Look up performance art if you want. There is one artist I have heard of that throws himself down the stairs and calls the bruises art.

Look up piss christ. Hate world


Still not buying it, it incorporates no aesthetic principles. By the 'evoke a response' definition, everything and anything is art. If that is the case, then this world is in a much sadder state than I thought.

Now, you're getting it. Well, everything and anything CAN be art. It is just up to someone to designate it as art.

So if something doesn't invoke a reaction from me, I can confidently say that it isn't art. Awesome. Hey Jackson Pollack, you's a biatch.

You might argue that raw science is not art, because there is no intention and no creativity, and in many cases no observer.

Someone unknowingly knocks a penny off the edge of a boat into the ocean. No one observes it. The penny falls through the air and then through the water according to the laws of gravity, with air resistance and water resistance exactly as they should. Pretty sure this is not art.

nope.

And really, paint on a canvas will always be art...regardless if you like it or not. It might suck and everyone hate it, but if paint on a canvas isn't considered art, then well, sh*t, I don't know. Even those ugly cats that chick paints are art.

AverageAmericanGuy: A little transparency into what the fark takes women so farking long in the restroom would be desirable.


This is a little how it goes:

Take shower
Fix hair-Put products in hair then blow dry, straighten.
Get moisturizer for face, foundation primer, eye lid primer. Apply foundation, mascara, eye shadow, blush, eye brow filler, etc.

Now you choose the clothes:

What's the occasion? Going out? Heels, skirt or dress, bra, panties.

Then the end, lint roller, perfume, toss the hair, add lipstick and you're done!

I might have left some stuff out.

Exhibitionism: how does it work?

Breastfeeding 

Hopefully in an alcove with a wall that separates the area from the poo & urine mist that coats everything when the lidless toilets are flushed.

Things like this are simply not provocative anymore. They're just a pathetic excuse for people to participate in voyeurism and exhibitionism. There are better ways to accomplish this. Try being original.

I'm actually really disturbed that they didn't tell women it was going on until they received complaints. That's just wrong. I imagine if this happened in the US that there would be many lawsuits involved.

PillsHere: Things like this are simply not provocative anymore.


Agreed.

I'm reminded of something Grace Slick told her rebellious teenage daughter: Don't waste your time trying to shock me, kid. You wanna shock me? Bring home good grades.

/or words to that effect.

You've given me a mental picture of something that is potentially symbolic. I consider this art.

If you've been married or lived with a woman, a bathroom voyeurism is not advised.

Very not advised.

It's a prank, not a genuine government sign. The template was downloaded from a site like this or this, and posted in some bathroom for... well... shiats and giggles.

My description was absolutely art. But if what I described actually occurred, accidentally and unbeknownst to anybody, that wouldn't be art (I think).

If a penny falls to the ocean floor, and no one is there to see, does it still make it art?

Well you could measure the air and water resistance and that would be 'observation' which is art.
