But is it art?

Saw this on the Derren Brown blog:

rotating kitchen from Zeger Reyers on Vimeo.

It struck a chord as I was reading and writing about creativity...

I think it is a poltergeist, or possibly vindicates Guy Lambert's underground water theory. Either way, send for a parapscyhcologist.

It must be that interesting otherwise why would so many people be watching it? It can't be art of course as it is entirely predictable - unless the art is the pattern made by the people standing around. It did occur to me it might be the world's slowest tumble dryer but I wouldn't fancy putting my socks in there.

I can't believe I just saw a man throw an object back that had rolled out. Idiot - it could be worth millions Rodney!

I should point out that I do know how to spell parapsyhcolo, parapscyholo, parapsycohlo, oh sod it.

Art....???oh dont get me started on what is classed as art. The tate modern is a classic example of how mad the art world is.

Its a flipping box made to look like a kitchen and rotated so the objects fall off...whats so artful about that.!!!!!!

Ridiculous and a total waste of time.

Give me a good landscape anyday..that is art.

Rant over...off to look at my Renoir...I wish.

all that chocolate box stuff is nothing but kitsch. Art is about the intellect.

Sorry,intellect? I disagree...art is creative...its a gift that you are born with,or in my case..not.

There is nothing intelligent or creative about shoving a wardrobe on a stand and calling it art.I rolled about lauhging in the tate at that one...almost got thrown out for that..ha ha.
