Re: [BKARTS] Reflections on bookart and commerce



This reminds me of a dada exhibit made by a friend of mine in San Antonio
Texas.  He made a computer game complete with the kiosk where you play a game
where no matter what you do a random score would ring up with lots of bells and
whistles and at the end your character gets eaten by sharks.  No matter how
long you play it, you get a random score and your player gets eaten by the
sharks.  This was put into a museum and kids were playing it all the time.  Nobody
cared enough to realize that it was Dada.  There was no point to it, the
buttons did nothing  but make a sound, everything was random.  So if you assume
people "get It" , they don't.
Just be careful not to get eaten by the sharks!

Sincerely,
