“experiment in phenomenology”

While walking in Uptown Saturday night, I spotted this little guy.  Looks like a Banksyknock off.  Oh man, it would be totally awesome if Banksy was in MPLS.  An amazing vacation= visiting Banksy locations . 

Is imitation really the sincerest form of flattery?  Andy Warhol mocked popular culture.  Sherri Levine borrowed from Duchamp’s Fountain.  GirlTalkmashes everyone’s work.  Collaboration has potential for really amazing forms of expression.

  1. Banksy
    Is this also the artist that filmed that music video you highlighted quite some time ago? Social commentary on our toxic existence? Similar, maybe. At least, that was my first thought. Maybe it was an obvious correlation considering the gas masks and really they aren’t related in any way. Oh, geeze. I have no idea what I’m talking about.
