"speaking of new member cuso4"
 
   Did you ever wonder what would happen if you made an abandoned apartment watertight, then filled it completely full of copper(II) sulfate solution for a few weeks?

Well, wonder no longer.

   <nod> And I thought it was a nice bright blue in the small amounts I could produce in a test tube.

"… destined to be remembered as one of the truly worthwhile and significant moments of modern British art… — Jonathan Jones, The Guardian"

CLEARLY, Mr. Jones and most likely The Guardian as a whole, have a significantly different idea of what constitutes "worthwhile and significant" in in general, and in the world of art in particular, than mine. Interesting and cool, yeah. Worthwhile and significant, not in any way, shape or form.

Gainsborough, Turner, Constable, Hockney...there's worthwhile and significant when it comes to British art, modern or classical. This? Is a cool experiment that produced interesting things to look at. That's not BAD, mind you, cool and interesting is needed...but it doesn't constitute anything that is significant or, from an artistic point of view, worthwhile.

   Or, in summary, "'worthwhile and significant... modern... art.' Bah."

To be fair, you haven't seen it in person. Maybe there's something transcendental about it when you're actually standing in it.

Also, remember that Mr. Jones is paid to say things like that. Hyperbole is his mode and modus, to paraphrase Mr. Gibson.

   I noted Hockney among those I counted. I can add Chris Billington, David Rolt, Joanna Carrington. All modern, British, artists who make spectacular work. But, see, they make art. A room-full of blue crystals has about as much to do with art as a pile of rotting sack-cloth and dung. Just because you claim it as art in poncy words does not make it so.
In, it should be noted again, my opinion.

I will also say that, at least the blue room is cool-looking. It isn't art, but it is cool. Dung and sack-cloth is just revolting.

   IMO, it is okay to call something that is aesthetically appealing for its own sake art. You're trying to make a pretty thing. It's art. It doesn't have to have meaning to be art. It just has to evoke a response in the viewer, which this does. (Even if the response is "oh, that's neat/pretty/a terrible waste of chemical supplies/a shameful commentary on what passes for modern art in Britain").

I wouldn't mind seeing Banksy tag one, though.

IMO, the best description of Art isn't the work itself, but the frame by which we discuss the work. A painting isn't Art, Art happens when you look at a painting and think about it.

So by that definition, yes there is art in the blue room, as evidenced by this thread.

   The first thought that came to mind when I saw the pictures? "I think there's a plot for a Doctor Who episode here...."
