That's where the art will go....
The presentation was painfully dull – with moments of inadvertent hilarity. Notably, we were told that the new system would feature ‘art’. Space had been made at the top of the red tape screens for the inclusion of ‘art’.
‘And see where that sunflower is at the moment….that’s where the art will go. You can even choose which kind of art you want to see while you’re working.’
Bite-sized art for the rd tape monkeys of the art system – how thoughtful. We were then made privy to the high-level thinking behind this innovation.
‘They’ve done that because they reckon ‘Art’s good for the Arts Council’.’
There were a few titters at that point, but not the great clamour of derision that this statement deserved. It could, on reflection, have been a very cunning way to keep the listeners’ attention – moments earlier I had been toying with the idea of jabbing my leg with my car keys.
