Title: String Bored
Continuing with my exploration of modern art, after yesterdays Giant Whisk, I found this... thing. As I've mentioned in the past, normally I'm not one for modern art, and this piece is kind of why I'm not really a fan. Its a board. With string on it. The string, which is multi-colored, is hanging down. That's it. String. Board. I have no problem with folks making stuff like this, quite the contrary, I do silly things like this all the time (in my attempt to make things to take macro photos), but I would never be so egotistical to call it modern art and place it in the center of a museum. Its a board with string on it! Perhaps it has some deeper, metaphysical meaning that I just can't see, something that would explain the universe, perhaps prove God exist, or just explain String Theory (pun!), but really, it me is just a board with string on it!
Perhaps their art is related to cat toys. Who knows.
