Lady Gaga talks art: Old footage

This is why I can respect this artist. She can back it up. It's too bad her music has to appeal to the pop market so intensely. If she were free from a pop record label I think her music would be much more interesting.

Tooth of the Day:

"Brass Tooth" measures 5.5 inches (14 cm) high x 3 inches ( 7.65 cm) wide x 2.5 inches (6.35 cm) deep.

T
oday I mourn the loss of my Wisdom Teeth. I feel as though this sculpture
by Scottish artist David Shrigley is a fitting tribute to this fact.
"David Shrigley is well known for his witty sculpture's, drawings and hand-written texts. His art frequently asks questions about the nature of contemporary art and its audience. In his sculptural works, he makes physical some of his more curious and eccentric propositions by transforming found objects or by playing with their scale. Shrigley enlarges objects and imbues them with funny eccentric proportions as is the case of "Brass Tooth". "

"Who Shot Rock And Roll" @ The Brooklyn Museum

"If rock photography is a "silent window into the world of sound," then "Who Shot Rock & Roll, A Photographic History, 1955 to the Present," curated by Gail Buckland, is the loudest exhibit ever. Opening last night at The Brooklyn Museum, "Who Shot Rock" explores intimacy, passion and the countless other reasons we all love rock and roll in the first place." -Ben Eagle for The Huffington Post

Jeff Koons of the Day:

I wish this guy would go away. What is this? An easter Egg. How is this Important. I can see it's relevance as Art for conversation's sake, but not it's importance nor it's value as an historical object which I am sure it will be. Is it the vast bank account or an entitled position that qualifies one to fool the public into believing that anything Jeff Koons has to say's is Art and is actually worth Millions of Dollars. It only leads the way for many young aspiring artist's swimming in a large pool of greedy over-achiever's to see that the only way to the center of the Art Universe is through Lies and Manipulation. Not to mention poor taste.
"The Baroque Egg with Bow by Jeff Koons during a media preview May 1, 2009 at Sotheby's in New York. The work is one of the pieces scheduled to sell in a contemporaryz art auction May 12-13, 2009 in New York."

Designboom.com Competition of the Day: Reinventing the Bic Pen









"...in some instances the ballpoint pen has been used
for much more than the initial scribbling-down of an idea.
the 'bic pen' has seen numerous incarnations in
recent years - in more than one of designboom's competitions,
participants have decided to transform the iconic writer"
