As I mentioned above, there are many people who think Warhol and Kardashian are famous for no particular reason.
The video is very strongly rooted in pop culture, with memes and Kardashian quotes, because I think that art is strongly tied to its time and to reach a general audience, you may as well embrace the present. I suppose, in the vein of Duchamp, I also wanted to question what makes art art and why people will embrace some works. Thus, I pulled two pieces from generally accepted art: Warhol's hamburger video (which is actually part of a short art film by Danish film maker Jørgen Leth) and Ulysses by James Joyce to be questioned. To contrast and juxtapose, I used common internet memes and Kardashian quotes.
Is this a good/useful/informative piece of content to include in the project? Have your say!
