Anyone Can Make Art (& Look Like Princess Leia)

The uses of DVDs as art are endless. Here, bink models the Princess Leia look as she turns the archbishop's anti-marriage equality message into sculpture.



The opening reception for bink's DVD to ART starts in an hour and a half!

An article in today's Strib showed the DVD sculpture (unfinished, since bink didn't complete it until 2:30 this morning), and someone commented snidely,
"It looks like a pile of DVDs. Anyone could do that."

Mean-spirited, but I thought, exactly:
ANYONE CAN MAKE ART.
Just like anyone can get married.

Let's do it! Let's fall in love!

"Let's fall in love
Why shouldn't we fall in love?
Our hearts are made of it
Let's take a chance, why be afraid of it? "

"Even educated fleas do it"

(Hortas/gGorn/Salt-monsters/Redshirts do it)

"Not to mention the Fins"

"People say in Boston even beans do it"

(And I would bet there are people in Boston who make art out of beans, too; why not?)

(You seen the photoshop of Kirk kissing Leia? It exists!)

May it be super good tonight!
squee!
