if you ever find yourself required to make a comment about modern art, just construct a statement around the words “tension” and “internalize”.
- by scattering paper on the floor as an environmental criticism, the artist contradicts himself and creates a tension that the viewer must internalize.
- i like the way this makes me internalize my tension.
- i hope the artist internally chokes on his own tension.
- this is a load of tense, internalized, bullshit.”— so helpful for going to museums, or, say, being a college student. i believe a few of my response essays from this morning’s literature test included some version of the above.
