“I see a connection between tech and fastfood culture, both are fetishized, quickly consumed then discarded.”

I was so close to becoming an art connoisseur thanks to back-of-truck grime art and the invisible art exhibit. Then Henry Hargreaves went ahead and made an artistic statement about consumption by deep-frying some gadgets and I felt kicked in the arts again.

But wait, due to a lack of funding, Mr. Hargreaves didn’t deep-fry the actual electronics and built his soon-to-be-fried gadgets out of foamcore. So I guess the key to Jubbling art must be limited funding. Thank you Mr. Hargreaves – artful message received. Best of all, you didn’t have to make your point and provoke us to think about consumption via hypocritical art. [Wired]
