Artist's shit (1961), by Piero Manzoni
...the true prototype of postmodern architecture?
For the item in Orhan's post: I think you'll want to send the can-opener through the dishwasher at least twice...
DO NOT OPEN IT'S ART
da- little box architecture is where it is at... greenie lil box is even better.
Except, Manzoni's shit is selling around $200,000 a can these days and museums around the world are competing to get one.
puts the art in the fart
"Robert Venturi" set ;)
stacks up and sideways.
why can't kids just play with building blocks? once you start your phenomological wholeness crap, and tell them they're derivative works of postmodernists, aren't you stripping away pretty much everything good and creative?
you're breaking it. let it go. enjoy it or don't. a can of meat or a kid's toy doesn't need analyzed and classified.
I am surprised with the lack of acknowledgement of Manzoni's work vis a vis Arte Povera, Conceptual Art, materiality in art etc.., and so on.
I wonder if pages of passionate arguments and word dressing in various threads here are really equivalent to fart-ins?
But anyway, let's keep it to architecture in box topic. Architecture of shit must be addressed and given a place in the discourse.
thats some catty shit there
furthermore, i am not a catholic and have no interest in scatology or urine as means of expression. (the likes of manzoni and serrano). blood, well thats something else. an early wishing of sad ashura everyone.
might as well say you have no interest in art, because there are a lot of shit and piss in it.
on the latter, enjoy it tammuz one of them is yours...
maybe he enjoys art, just not art that exists only for a critic's critique
200k for a can of shit. Is this where those bush tax cuts are going?
uhhh What in a box?
curtkram - with this idea I would (also) like to point out some similarities between "postmodern architecture" and construction toys for children.
I am not surprised that architects drew inspiration from toys for children, other artists did it.
me think it be a tuff sell that architects were influenced by toys. Im sure you can find some who agree, and there are artists and designers (like Munari) who made a lot of things for children, but beyond that, that thought might well be the path better not taken. Its all fun until someone gets hurt, or until the blocks ofTerragni's Sarafatti are compared to, uh, blocks.

Second Floor Bathroom smaller box. but Architecture...
Frank Wright also messed around with wooden Blocks.
Bruce Goff said, screw it and messed around with anything at hand.
its interesting to think the reversal of Lo Giudice's strategy in pasting the brand-name-item of architecture onto a box, to mimic a supermarket product, saying as souvenirs-architecture can equally be associated with consumerism.
