um... OK


Maybe I'm not a da Vinci, but I don't think this is art.

  • Hoon Lee staged an art show in Omaha, Nebraska where he licked yellow icing off a 2,500 square-foot floor. He wanted "people to look at the icing and feel a certain way."
  • Cang Xin staged "Lick the World" in Sydney. He licked anything visitors brought to him and claimed to use his tongue to improve world spirituality.

Tongue-In-Cheek Art?

Art is such a strange thing, really. It seems, these days, that just because you do something no one else does it is considered art.

I saw a documentary once about some guy who made art out of turds. I don't remember for sure, but I think it was his own feces that he used for his... "art".

I don't think this is art.

I side towards agreement with you. If it is art, it is not very interesting art. Should he do a duet with Gene Simmons?

If that's art, I'd say my dog is a great artist. Boy can she lick anything and everything. Maybe I can exhibit her and make some money. Seriously, what are people thinking when they say this is art?

This post reminds me of Jenni Tapanila, an artist who pricked her tongue with a needle to take a picture by herself.
I tried to add a picture of it but the tag does not work here. Here's a link to the picture.

Unfortunately, I have had the displeasure of meeting this man in person (Hoon Lee). He has terrible coffee-cigarette breath, I hope someone bought him some NICE mouth wash for Christmas, for the good of society. That would be a much better way of improving the world than licking random trash.
