Allan Kaprow and my old job

So far this class I’m in has been in session for 2 days and it already changed what I once considered art.

Allan Kaprow has changed art as definition, I said before that he defined art as a verb and I didn’t explain it. Mostly because this is my blog and I want to explain that here. After searching his images on Google all you see are his happenings. The noun art is one thing but TO art(verb) is different. He’s made it into a thing he does,until his move, and gained followers and fame. I also like how Dr.Glenn talked about his attention to detail. The pic below looks as if it is just a messy room of tires but I am not doubt sure that it is a meticulously thought out piece.

Gotta love a nice whitewall though.

I kinda feel like relating these lessons to my life,

So i said in a slack post that it reminded me of an old job I had at a tire place. At the end of the day we’d stack the old tires in the truck like so, called lacing. And to us working there, it was art and pride. If you worked mon-thurs, you made damn sure your laces looked better than the guy working fri-sat.

And damn was it a freaking workout. lol


ps: you can use my art 110 gif if you want, or, if you want your own or anything sure, I made it in C4D and premiere.
