THIS PIECE OF CONCEPTUAL ART


was inspired by David Bailey's 'TEDDYBEAR PIZZA' camera phone diptych 2008.
It was also inspired by Julia's flat mate's conceptual 'CREATIVITY CLOCK' which is a generic wind up clock with the word 'creativity' affixed to the second hand. Saying ' THIS PIECE OF CONCEPTUAL ART' was inspired by Chris Johanson, our favourite living artist.

The theme of this 'piece' is 'Balance'. It is a comment on the struggles of the artist or human to maintain a healthy 'Work/Life' balance while at the same time struggling to maintain the widely-regarded-as-beneficial-health-wise 'Balanced Diet'.

having lost many potentially fruitful hours of 'work' to 'life' and having spent yesterday powered by acid and five galaxy minstrels i feel this piece reaches me fully. I'd be very keen to see your other work and talk about money.

Most of our stuff is conceptual and conceptually not practicable.
We can let you smell an idea for a peek at your money.

We can listen to your money jiggle jiggle and you can listen to us thinking.

What flavour acid?

Oh yeah, the conceptual art is the burning of pizza NOT this photograph of said burnt pizza

Perry, remember that time i was cooking potatoes, but we decided to go to McDonalds. When we got back, the potatoes were burned to the pan and we had eaten McDonalds... Was that unconsciously an influence on your concept?

egictive means...

yeah, i mean i guess every meal i've ever eaten or not eaten has influenced me to a certain degree, on some level and to some degree.

i would love to give you proper credit for your influence (i.e. put you on a myspace 'influences' list) but you must declare yourself friend.

also i don't think 'egicitive' is a word.

but i think i can remember the smell of burning potatoes
