The Duchamp addition just sort of came to me halfway through writing this piece. I think about him sometimes when I’m scrolling through Instagram.
He’s an obvious fingerpoint when the whole “anything can be art” idea comes up in conversation, and to be completely honest, he can be used to support either side of the argument – it just depends on whether you think he’s a hack or not. His sculptures do pose an interesting question, though – whether it’s the actual formative quality of the art that makes it art or if it’s the intent behind the formation that does.
…why are you looking at me like that? I don’t have an answer. I just make shit, man.
