Crank out the Crap

I just read an artist statement that said the work "deals with the subversion and altering of identity through portraiture..."

Subversion? Really? You do realize this is art and not political science, right?

Anyway, I know this is probably old news to many, but if you haven't done it, go check out the Market-o-Matic artist statement generator!

The site states: Pimping yourself to the self-referential digital arts community has never been so easy!

Here's what it spat out for my selections when I hit the "crank out the crap" button.

Work of Post-Art in the Age of Symbiotic Reproduction

The flux creates, the body permeates. In the material reality, art objects are reproductions of the iterations of the flux -- a flux that uses the body as a machine to represent ideas, patterns, and emotions. With the evolution of the electronic environment, the flux is reaching a point where it will be free from the body to consume immersions into the contortions of the delphic reality. Work of Post-Art in the Age of Symbiotic Reproduction contains 10 minimal flash engines (also refered to as "memes") that enable the user to make haunting audio/visual compositions.

measuring chains, constructing realities putting into place forms a matrix of illusion and disillusion a strange attracting force so that a seduced reality will be able to spontaneously feed on it

Wesley Brown's work investigates the nuances of pixels through the use of slow motion and close-ups which emphasize the Symbiotic nature of digital media. Brown explores abstract and lonely scenery as motifs to describe the idea of imaginary reality. Using dark loops, non-linear narratives, and slow-motion images as patterns, Brown creates meditative environments which suggest the expansion of culture...

My eyes glazed over three sentences in and just decided I just like your work and you don't really need to explain it !

J. Wesley Brown said...

Heck, maybe I should make my real statements like this if that's the effect!
