Thanks to Micah and Deb for running an interesting discussion today on the work of Tobias Wong, art vs. design, Marcel Duchamp, The Cheese Monkeys, Paul Sahre, Yves Klein, postmodernism, Georges Seurat and Slankets.
Don’t forget CritBuns [http://www.critbuns.com/], Dan Graham, and Michael Osborne [http://www.modsf.com/]
I’m very interested in Tobias Wong’s design and his concept of applying dadaism to his works. He redesigned the all-ready made art products, which challenge us to question——what is the value? Why it is? I think there is an interaction in his work, audience are invited to participate in. The reaction from audience is the only purpose of his design.
