at first glance, one might think...

...this hardly qualifies as art. but, everything on this earth deserves a second look--except for the toothy little man that yelled "hey sweetie" at me repeatedly from his truck as I was leaving my apartment this morning (though, at least i got an 8am giggle out of it).

art is "the quality, production, expression, or realm, according to aesthetic principles, of what is beautiful, appealing, or of more than ordinary significance." And might I add, if you can't stop staring at it, it's art. but who cares what I think. I love this piece here by Michael Bilsborough. His first NY solo exhibition opened last month. I'm moved to scribble my own psychosomatic maze.

from The Only Way Out is Through (if I had an exhibition, I think I'd name it this).

Wow i really really like this. I clicked the link and his art has that infinite loop almost M.C. Escher-esque quality about it. Only more existential. I dig. And like you i may have to do one of these myself stream of consciousness flowcharts myself.

yeah, there's something to your label for it, too: "stream of consciousness flowchart."
