I would imagine it would be pretty hard to keep in a good shape.

1000steps wrote:If the kids in the photo are gamers, they've already seen violence far worse than Cleon's images, far more realistically portrayed. And that remains true even if the parents are prohibiting them from playing the nastiest ones. One would need to hide their child in a bunker to keep them away from American death-culture thsee days. It's everywhere, and it gets more vile with every passing year.

Slamming an artist for the larger society's infatuation with pornographic violence seems like highly selective criticism. If you feel so strongly about the level of violence in society, maybe you should aim a little higher?
Do you have kids, or are you just making fudge up? My kid plays video games and none of them are nearly as graphic or violent as this artwork.

Was there a criteria? All I see is a blurry photo with two stupid facial expressions and a shitty beer.

Lulls. Seriously? Musta been an inside job. Or perhaps they were they only ones who incorporated the fancy futons so much, which was obviously the whole point of the "contest".
