AboutI dunno man but maybe it's because, like I lack intelligence or something but I just got a bit sick of art just being some shit in a room, you know what I mean?
I just think I got a bit bored of static objects, they just seem to kind of stagnate, you know? Things just sitting there doing nothing, I think that's just boring. I mean art can be fucking
anything, but it always kind of ends up being kind of the same, just shit in rooms, taking up space. And I fucking hate art that's all clean and perfect and shit, it just seems dishonest,
clinical and white washed. It doesn't reflect what's going on, I mean like our entertainment is like the internet and DIY Youtube videos, and our shopping centers are like infested with Poundland and Lidl, nothings really that clean anymore. I want something honest and raw, something with no bullshit. Objects have burnt out, crushed under their own weight and we're not really looking at them anymore. I like shit that moves, shit that is aggressive and violent, shit that kills itself. Stuff like that really thrills me and I don't care if it's like, behind a screen or whatever.
But man that's just like my opinion, you know what I mean?
