    A general observation - judgment of art is so largely subjective that emotion and ego commonly get in the way - especially when the judge is another "artist" in a position of authority. Grades in art class should be taken with an elephant terd size grain of salt.

    Believe me I can smell the bullshit a mile away. The 'theoretical' students get the high marks at my college. Even though their BS could never be built.

    There's are a lot to be learned in school - some useful, some not useful. Learning how to get good grades in school is not one of the useful things. That is my deep thought for the day.

    This building is great. Let's hope that it ages gracefully.

    That's what I'm wondering. It's so 'out there' that I could see people really liking it, despite its lack of any conventional beauty.
