    What exactly is brilliant about this? This look and concept is so common now. Sure you can like it, but it’s not “brilliant.” Words like that are thrown around too much, cause it seems to carry more merit than “awesome.” This series is kinda funny or trendy or aesthetically pleasing. Not brilliant.

      “about the emergence and development of ideas and concepts, when is an idea interesting enough to pursue and realize” – quoted from PUTPUT post on the Der Greif blog.

      i’m exploring the point at which an idea is deemed interesting enough to pursue as well. the images are beautifully shot and addressing something i think about so this work resonates with me.

      just my two cents, you’re entitled to your opinion but it’s funny to me that you’re so specific in the things that this work can and cannot be.

        I get it, I’m just saying that everyone is exploring this right now. I just don’t see what makes this any different (brilliant) than the rest of the work like it. My problem isn’t the work itself, it’s everyone praising it for being unique when it’s a trend. I’m about to graduate from art school, I’m just tired of it.

        if you could point me to some work you personally deem brilliant (and i’m not be facetious here) i would love to see some work that is different and new and worth sharing

        Ah, makes sense. Everyone knows everything when they are graduating from art school. – Signed an “art school graduate”

      Art is subjective. Just because you dislike it doesn’t mean everybody has to dislike.

In honour of Kanye’s surprising new album artwork and title, “The Life of Pablo”, Andy, Joey, and Drew made a Kanye Album Art Generator. My version is dedicated to my little friend Mika.

*Update – If you missed the live stream of “The Life of Pablo” and the debut of Yeezy Season 3, it’s playing on a loop here.

OK Go’s Impressive New Music Video Shot in Zero Gravity

This is nuts! I wonder how many times they had to shoot this (and how much plane fuel was used). Watch “Upside Down & Inside Out” on Booooooom TV.
