"I really believe in empty spaces, although, as an artist, I make a lot of junk. Empty space is never-wasted space. Wasted space is any space that has art in it." --- Andy Warhol, The Philosophy of Andy Warhol

I finally moved into my new home and, of course, I immediately Warholized my room :)

Okay, very big news today! Tomorrow, The Photographer's Gallery in London will open three exhibitions: David Lynch's, William S. Burroughs' and Andy Warhol's photographies will be on display. I cannot describe how thrilled I am and I'll definitely plan a trip to London soon! Not only did I write my BA thesis on Burroughs, I also love Lynch's films and I don't even have to mention why I want to see Warhols photos :) exciting exciting exciting

"People need to be made more aware of the need to work at learning how to live because life is so quick and sometimes it goes away too quickly." --- Andy Warhol

"... Schiller's claim that there must be some perceptible features of the object itself to serve as the basis for aesthetic judgment articulates one of the central beliefs of classical aesthetics. We might formulate this belief as follows: that if A is an object of art and A* is not an object of art, then there must be some perceptual feature of A that A* does not have. Such a belief runs counter to the fundamental principle sometimes cited to justify modern art: that of two perceptually identical objects, one can be an object of art (Warhol's Brillo Box) and the other not be (the brillo box on the supermarket shelf). The problem with this principle, Schiller would say, is that it undermines all reason or justification for aesthetic judgment, and ultimately the universalizability of aesthetic judgment itself. For if the aesthetic judgment makes no reference to perceptual features of the object, how could one justify it? How could one expect others to feel the same? To appeal to the philosophy of the art world or its institutions is only to take the judgment outside aesthetic experience entirely." --- Frederick Beiser, Schiller as Philosopher
