That would be Martin Creed, I believe. He won the Turner Prize for the lights switching off and on. Or, on and off. Not sure. I am not an expert.Well I love it....I just wonder if the artist believes the whole concept or if he is pulling one over on people on purpose. Meaning, does he believe his own bullshit? It is obviously not bullshit to the person that paid for it. They are buying the concept. I just wonder if the artist is doing it to make fun of the art world or if he believes the space is truly a vacuum with energy and actual particle weight (which it would be impossible to have any more weight than the air outside of the space it supposedly takes up, duh.
Does anyone remember that artist (many years ago) that won a prize (a Tate prize maybe?) for an empty white room that had a motion light in it that went on when you walked into it? That's what this reminds me of.
Is this better than the banana? At least it won't rot or stink.
