This 'exhibition' is about neither art nor imagination - it is about ego.
And who's to say whether what you're 'seeing' is right or not lol.

I dont think there is meant to be a right or wrong. I think its about making you the artist for a change, instead of just a person going along to see someone elses art. I think its an interesting idea.

It is an interesting phylosophical idea indeed. Maybe have one exibit and the question posed. But really as stated by Leonardo, it is about ego. And perhaps idol worship. Should I feel grateful or enlighted to see a spot where andy stood? Im an artist as well, and I find it rather silly and even a bit insulting to pay someone else for the privalge to think for myself.

.....Im NOT here.....

Then why not simply hang several blank canvasses?

Why have 'invisible art' from "famous artists"? Princess Tumbleweed showed that one doesn't have to be "famous" (no disrespect intended, Princess) to be an artist, and the quality of Princess's 'invisible art' was equal to that of these "famous artists".

I will use my 'imagination' and imagine that I buy an invisible plane ticket to the U.K. (bought with invisible gold of course, as I just recently found out on this thread that there is no such thing as invisible money) . I shall imagine myself paying the admission to go see this invisible display of fine art.

Damn invisible TSA just patted me down and touched my no-no place. They are saying that I have an invisible bomb and I am a threat to the invisible plane that I was about to board.

Oh well, there goes that trip.

Instead of posting a reply to this thread, I took what I was going to say, crumpled it up and threw it in a waste basket, so that it would be worth more money as a piece of modern art.

LOL that is great! I never knew about that piece but wrote one similar when I was a kid in high school. It had multiple time signature changes in it but consisted of no notes on the score, only rests. Whole rests, half rests, 8th rests etc.. I had even instructions for fortissimo and rubato in certain parts. My music teacher gave me an A+ on that extra credit project.

I probably should have submitted that to my math teacher at the time as well because all the rests added up to the time signatures assigned. :D

Bingo! Was thinking the same thing, since I paint and draw whenever in my freetime. Even though I'm not much of an artist IMO, still...it's insulting regardless.
