Wooot?!! That's just silly. Was he asked what the concept was behind him pouring a cup of tea?

Aha, I just remember a recent ridiculous/silly arty thing. Lady Gaga wearing that meat suit! Cher was standing behind her and when she was interviewed later, she said that the meat had been very carefully stitched and was actually beautifully made. It was a creative idea, you have to give it that.

I hope Lady Gaga hasn't got a dog! Or in some ways, I hope she has!

I think the interviewer was so surprised she forgot to ask about the concept, but my feeling is he could easily have come up with something: like "subverting the English tradition of afternoon tea to highlight the inexorable golden flow of ideas emanating from creative artists like me".

This is what the artist, Daniel Coburn, says about this images:

Image 1 - Modern Moses
"In this photograph I found the perfect location to shoot. Unfortunately the perfect location was located on private property and I didn’t know how to contact the owners to obtain permission. So I did what any self-respecting landscape photographer would do_ I trespassed. I used wire tent stakes to anchor the nylon rope. I used myself as the model. My camera was anchored to a tri-pod and I used an infra-red remote to trigger the shutter release."

Image 2 - Get Born Again

"I spent a Sunday afternoon rummaging through junk at garage sales to find the doll parts for this piece. And yes, that is me wallowing in the mud, half-naked, amongst tree roots. Again the camera was positioned on a tripod and I triggered the camera using a wireless remote."

Thats crazy!

I once knew a time based artist who made a film of a woman eating malteasers that went on for an hour...

I could eat maltesers for an hour- do you think they want to do a sequel?

I have to say my current effort of a thing with eight human arms as legs is looking comparatively sensible now...

*must try harder*

Haha! grinnie, you're too funny!

And btw, I can eat maltesers for at least 2 hours! I didn't know that was art.
