Stop thinking about art works as objects, and start thinking about them as triggers for experiences. (Roy Ascott’s phrase.) That solves a lot of problems: we don’t have to argue whether photographs are art, or whether performances are art, or whether Carl Andre’s bricks or Andrew Serranos’s piss or Little Richard’s ‘Long Tall Sally’ are art, because we say, ‘Art is something that happens, a process, not a quality, and all sorts of things can make it happen.’ … [W]hat makes a work of art ‘good’ for you is not something that is already ‘inside’ it, but something that happens inside you — so the value of the work lies in the degree to which it can help you have the kind of experience that you call art.
there is a simple answer to everything and its usually no
This guy from our letting agent just fucking showed up at our door with no notice with a viewing, I told him no.. Wtf I don’t want a couple of randomers going through the house when I’m eating lunch and revising like slob when the kitchens dirty, the rats cage need cleaned out and the place generally needs tidied… That made me so annoyed. It’s such an invasion of space to have people you don’t know looking around your home…
Having a low opinion of yourself is not modesty. It’s self-destruction.
Revision bargaining with myself; if I do 1 more hour revising, no looking at my phone, I get to have lunch and go for a walk. Ok go.
you’d think by now autocorrect would know i’m saying fucking and not ducking
‘theres less ironing to do this week so I left you half of what I usually pay’
