IT'S ART ... BUT IS IT RUBBISH?

An example of Ms Takahashi's installation art, from the Norwich Gallery

Ananova reports that an exhibit entitled My Play-Station, by Japanese artist Tomoko Takahashi, has been put on display at London's Serpentine Gallery. This exhibit features 7,600 pieces of junk,including old washing machines, broken toys and a rusty muck-spreader. Curator Rochelle Steiner said:
"This show is giving these objects another use. Games come with rules, and she's really interested in how with rules comes order, how you break out of order, and the relationship between order and disorder."
The IPKat likes the idea of defining an artwork in terms of rules that establish order: this is a very lawyer-ish thing to do. But Merpel asks, what about the rules of copyright? Do they apply here too?

The IPKat likes Gavin Turk's rubbish best: he keeps it tidier ...

Hi,

I just across sites and found that your Blogs are amazing.

Do you know, your blog can generate extra income by posting Google Adsense? If you ever know about Adsense, you understand to get hundreds of dollar per month is not an easy way. One of the most important is to generate massive traffic.

Few days ago, I found a very useful software that will generate hundreds of back links to our website. Do you know why back links is so important to generate traffic?
Yes, you are right! back links will jump up your position in search engine! If your position gets higher from day to day, you'll find your traffic increase significantly as well.

That software is Blog Link Generator!

This software so powerful. You even do not need to create links directory in your site. Is that sound good? You put your link in other's website, but you never put a link back to their site?

Visit www.LinkInBlog.com now and I so confident you'll never sorry.
