@indigomoth - Well, I think there's a place for all of that though. I mean, I'm not all that fond of that kind of art either, but someone must be, or it wouldn't keep happening. And there are plenty of other kinds of art around to keep me happy.
I actually saw a movie recently where they followed a plastic bag (pretending it had a personality) from its making to its final resting place and I thought that was a really good combination of art and environmental awareness. It was funny, but it made a point and it was beautifully shot as well.
That's the kind of combination I think more people should be aiming for.
