In high school and college, everything is art, because everything is meaningful. The Pepsi can crushed by a Nike shoe? You have to take a black and white photo of that; it’s a metaphor for capitalism stomping capitalism. Think about it, man, and once you do, let me know if Los Angeles-based artist XVALA is still a student who finds beauty in a piece of garbage blowing in the wind, or just a creep.
Cory Allen Contemporary Art (CACA) has announced that the recently leaked nude images of Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton will be the latest additions to Los Angeles artist XVALA’s “Fear Google” campaign and will be on display to the public, unaltered, in the artist’s upcoming show “No Delete” next month at CACA’s The Showroom in Saint Petersburg, Fla.

Also on display: the leaked naked images of Scarlett Johansson, “with the ‘Fear Google’ logo covering her intimate areas.” Deep. Anyway, I’m not sure if Google’s the enemy here; it’s probably the guy who’s exploiting the most embarrassing moments in a person’s life to make a bullsh*t point about nothing.
“I’m calling attention to the fact that our information should be our own and it’s not. I feel like if we can’t call personal property personal it becomes public property. I would rather hit a delete button and have this go away. The perfect world would be where we can control our information, but nobody can.
“People have been promoting technology as this great thing, which it is, but we feel immune to the side effects. You have that nightmare where you’re naked in public and can’t do anything about it. This is that. It’s a nightmare come true.” (Via)
I take that back: it’s a hypocritical bullsh*t point about nothing.
