Other People Exist

and are not just sense data

Studies show that even when they are not there, other people exist, with thoughts, feelings, and desires just like you

Us serious artists have to contend with meaningful questions about art such as "Is graffiti art?" I don't have the answer, but my thoughts have been heavily influenced by having the word SUMO permanently etched in the glass of the door to my home. I guess I am not a big fan of the destruction of personal property.

When it comes to the graffiti-ing of advertising in the public space, however, my view is different. I consider advertising visual pollution, filthying up the world for profit (or as They call it, "creating a branded environment.") And I think when people alter billboards and posters, it's hilarious.

I particularly never get tired of the blackening of teeth, especially the teeth of computer-generated pretty people who inhabit artificial worlds. It's like spoiling their perfect party.
