    Art or rubbish?



    AFTER viewing New York- based photographer John Clang's works at The Esplanade recently, StreetShooter was unimpressed. He said: 'I half-suspect he's having everyone on and laughing all the way to the bank at the pretentiousness of the people who think he's artistic.'

    The vote is divided: many said Clang's work was mediocre while others, like mattlock, said people have missed the artist's intention.

    The debate provoked a response from a netizen claiming to be Clang himself. 'Art is not a language that we can instantly use to commu- nicate...It requires patience and willingness, and an open mind to see beyond.'

    I notice they started to quote from online forums and make stories out of it, are they lack of ideas or what?

    they are finding interesting stories, not too different from getting stories from other sources such as overseas news agencies. the internet is fair game.

    Not right leh, if *every* reporters stay at home and surf the net to get news, then who will be out there reporting news and update the net? Confused,
    Somehow, this reminds me the theory that whoever controls the net will control the news, eventually.....

    Which is why we have to be responsible for everything we say/write.. For good and bad, it will live on the web for almost eternally and searchable..

    There is really no more anonymous postings since all our locations can be easily found by those who know...
