This is artist Olivier Grossetete again, but this video shows the construction of the tower in Glasgow shown in the previous post. There are a lot of messages in this work, and some may be unintentional on the part of the artist. This video raised a lot of interesting questions about what art actually is. I have attempted to put some of my thoughts below.
Things I read are:
Art is only as high as the people make it
Man is stronger than anything he can construct
Working together achieves things we cannot achieve alone
The grand is only an elevated construction of the simple
Kids and adults love to jump and trample al over cardboard boxes
I need cardboard boxes…BIG ones… I went dumpster diving in the huge Warehouse Stationary bin, to no avail, and then I hit the electrical stores, not much luck yet. I have found an old art packing box from when my ship came in from England, but it means emptying it!
Anyway here is the first poster/Bobby board.
I will play with it, it is actually a bit bigger than life size I think!
