Explain to me how this is not art.
1 post omitted. Click reply to view.


Could you explain how it is art, though?


nta, but for me art defines as something human made - everything can be art, if you look at the right angle


Thou art…

Cool backpack :)


Because it says Shrek. It is a picture of well known and liked, Marvel Hulk. Thus it is subversive and cool

All poetry welcome. Whether it be short poetry or an epic, oc you're proud of or something you think is very poor, a poem that speaks to you made by a long dead poet or just something you thought used pretty looking words. OC very encouraged.

A bit of a depressing one.

Untitled Poem 05/29/2022
I'm wasting my time putting my words on paper
Because everything I make was written by a faker
I still keep trying though to write something clever
But all I know is that original will take forever

I used to conjure scenery that would make you gasp
Now I write situations that wouldn't even make you laugh
I'm hoping one day I'll get those skills back, maybe soon
But I think I'd sooner throw a rock and hit the moon

I swear at one point I could even create meaning
Yet today everything I write is to art demeaning

Even more depressing

Untitled Poem 05/24/2022
I have found myself already so weary
But don't believe that I find life dreary

Instead I strain my ears for the rumbling drum
Of sweetened rain striking this lowly slum

It helps me to find some easy rest
And after all deep sleep is the best

So as my thoughts all fade away
I completely leave this world of gray


Untitled Poem 05/24/2022
Whenever I find the sun is setting
And I have a rock still in my hands,
I try to burn away that anger
By dreaming of better, warmer sands.

I conjure up images of footprints
And waves washing them away.
I don't fear their fading,
But feel happy to have my own play.

I sometimes peer at better days
Where I'm only in good company.
But I'm not quite there yet
And I feel I'm better when living free.

This is the earliest poem I still have record of. I write it because my uncle kept stealing from me lol.

Untitled Poem 05/13/2022
If I kept a gun in my night stand,
It would be unloaded by the morning.
And even if I made my food bland,
It would be eaten without warning.

It seems no matter what I do,
Without regard for my desires,
Another always comes through
Searching for things they can acquire.

No matter how I try to fight
With locks and walks and talks,

Last thing I'll post is my favorite poem written by someone else.

A Psalm of Life by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
What the Heart of the Young Man Said to the Psalmist

Tell me not, in mournful numbers,
"Life is but an empty dream!"
For the soul is dead that slumbers,
And things are not what they seem.

Life is real! Life is earnest!
And the grave is not its goal;
"Dust thou art, to dust returnest,"
Was not spoken of the soul.

Why do you like this one specifically? It's barely recognizable.

Absolutely friend! I don’t know visit them as often as I like but there’s something much more organic about them then there is about larger museums. There was one back home at the local community college that was always worth the 40 minute drive to go see


Friend shaped! Almost reminds me of Lynch's pieces.


thanks for sharing anon


they're literally just chilling…i love them. very good op very good.


>tfw no more leisure time
Damn. I miss it bros. I love the work, the childlike simplicity combined with dark colors and the blank almost worried expression is essentially lost youth

I like this painting


does it make you feel any kind of way when you look at it? or just visually pleasing


When I cry its often a great release and a very needed one, and I'm not brought to tears often except through emotional exhaustion and desperation.

This woman looks like how I do when I cry, buried in my hands in pain, but there's someone there who understands the situation, maybe even is providing solace. It looks like somewhere I want to be, having an emotional release with someone I love/am familiar with.


Mourning paintings are some of my favorite. There's something about capturing sadness that hits ten times harder than any emotion– the second being to rage.

Untitled by Zdzisław Beksiński, who was stabbed to death over a measly $100. May his soul and his sons soul Rest In Peace and may their legacy continue to inspire others.

Kind of always wondered what would happen if you lit the match.

here is a channel of visuals i have found. this is of an old japanese late night television block that showcases video games and 3d animation at the time, as well as landscapes and sometimes the showcasing of pictures that have their own narrative. (this isn't an arg i swear)

check this out if you have the time.


this is excellent, thank you.
i've been thinking about doing some sound -> video live manipulation with PureData and I think this footage will do perfectly


coincidentally, i am doing the same thing.
