Layer cake, I think that was a crap Guy Ritchie film. Or is it how to layer up an installation, such as; Incongruous objects + cute arrangement + silly pun = artspace installation.

I thought it was a great movie, of many layers, in particular I liked the twisted explanation of the facts of life given by Eddie Temple that made sense of the bad ending. Art in tablet form becomes orderly, one for every day of the week. Ingredients on the packet may be included such as Incongruous objects + cute arrangement + silly pun = artspace installation. I don't think of structuralism in terms of being superior, its more that I believe yes no questions cannot always sufficiently contend with those in the position to give approval, some art cannot describe itself as being functional unless it were to help along the reader in mind. Who really cares whats in the right pill right?

...just to prove what a sad bastard i am...check the alternate endings in the extras on a 'Layer Cake' DVD; there are another two, and apparently Ritchie sprang the 'shot by the strung out boyfriend' version on the producers at the premier, which does seem unlikely. but it is nice to have multiple endings to any film.

yep....agree with Bunrush's observation about the "demographic shifts toward young artists from privileged backgrounds - the children of those folks who chose to chase the dollar - will increasingly overrun artsville. These kids won't/don't have to worry about day jobs, grants, etc. thus they make up a perfect pool of for-free content providers....because they DON'T NEED THE MONEY."

my only comment would be that this is a shift _back_. not a new phenomenon. The short historical blip ( a handfull of decades) where some of us dumb schmucks from the factory streets were let in to play with the debutantes and beaus already came to a close.

the cost of education is part but damn near not all of why. stinky boguns need not apply. oh well...maybe one or two token sooty cinderellas a generation will get to go to the ball.

"want fries with that?" ha. that was the good old days...when broke idealists with night jobs still populated the art schools instead of gaggles of die Princessin in designer wear

Brava! Eyes wide open. Not an occasion for despair but an occasion for creative disruption among the ruins.

Quoting bunrush:

The graduate with a Science degree asks “Where’s my pay packet and what exactly do I have to do to get paid around here.”

The graduate with an Engineering degree asks “Where’s my pay packet and what exactly do I have to do to get paid around here.”

The graduate with an Accounting degree asks “Where’s my pay packet and what exactly do I have to do to get paid around here.”

The graduate with a Fine Arts degree asks “How exactly do I find my way out of this corporate rabbit-warren of work-cubicles. Oh, and, fuck your pay packet.”
Touchee or as some of us say touch eh? fuck your pay packet - brilliant - reminds me of a song I worte years back - "Oh why don't you break away, you weren't born to obey, come to the country - be rained on"

Agreed nos, I reckon though that for me it's now more about feralism - art is where, when, how we want to make it - NOT THEIR'S... vision is not a pocket pissing dance you do under complicit arrangement between favoured arse lickers. It's about truth and doing something about that - that's how art and conscience actually work - nothing their control of us - the industrialised corporatised, marekt forced  art commandantes have no effect on art and its history - its ours - simple - all art is direct action - paint brush, clay, oil, egg, fat on cave walls - they may not control us and the worst thing any of us can do is comply ABSOLUTELY we will not be bought. I once did a painting called "dance of the pocket pissers" ('97 or thereabouts) on the very subject. all these suited businessmen in a circle pissing in each other's pockets. I must do another one dance of the arse lickers... sorry I got a thing about suits!
