vandalog At #dismaland, it seems #Banksy brought out the worst in us. I only saw one person take control of these RC boats all evening. They took control of the military boat and used it to violently ram the boats full of migrants. 6d
  •   jlkizzle What did you want them to do with the boats? 6d
  •   artdelarue @vandalog is this a Banksy sell out? 6d
  •   vandalog @jlkizzle well that's the funny thing isn't it: Banksy doesn't provide us with a way to "win" or rescue anyone. Unless of course, we manually intervene... 6d
  •   vandalog @artdelarue I'm not sure I understand the question. 6d
  •   jlkizzle Does he even want you to drive the boats? If yes, you can see the funny side or the not so funny side, but if you don't see the funny side why drive it in the first place? 6d
  •   artdelarue @vandalog where does the Dismakand money to enter etc end up? 6d
  •   vandalog @artdelarue well assuming they sell all tickets, that's about £400,000. Not sure they are going to make a huge profit on this one. Think of the costs of staffing, fabrication, shipping, venue rental, renting other supplies, insurance, online ticketing system development, artist fees (maybe?), and so on... But let's assume they make a profit: Presumably money would go to the artist(s) as income, which lets them continue doing what they are doing. Or, I guess any profits could be given back to the people who bought tickets, and the artists could get day jobs and have less time to make art. 6d
  •   artdelarue @vandalog thanks! You have a refreshing view! 6d

vandalog One of the best parts of #dismaland is the tent where Strike! Magazine shows you how to break into bus shelter ad booths (and will sell you the tools to do so in the UK). If you don't live in the UK however, you might be able to get a set of tools for your city from @jordanseiler / PublicAdCampaign's Public Access project. 1w

  •   jordanseiler @vandalog this is the definition of outsider art and proof that its better than most insider art. 1w
  •   iamfauxreel @jordanseiler exactly!!! 1w
  •   monicaxcampana Where? 1w
  •   laz.laz @jordanseiler If you're speaking of Outsider Art as defined by Jean Dubuffet, Art Brut in French, you can't really speak of it here. @dirt_worship knows what she does and has, willingly or not, an artistic background and knowledge. Graffiti nowadays is merely Outsider Art. 1w
  •   dirt_worship @laz.laz labels can be traps 1w
  •   laz.laz @dirt_worship I fully agree. But as a writer since the late 80s and an Art Brut aficionado, I can't relate the current Graffiti scene and the Art Brut since the last one imply no contact with any academic pollution or cultural diktats. I think the mistake comes from the English translation... Outsider Art when it should be Rough Art (as not polished by its self-awareness). But I don't mean to belittle you work. It's just me being fussy for nothing. 1w
  •   ab5tract_nt3l Love(d) this 1w
  •   jordanseiler @laz.laz @dirt_worship yes i think the confusion comes from my poor word choice. Naive art? No thats not it. Anyways the word escapes me but i love the image and thats what matters. 1w

  •   malaslala Hi RJ- How difficult was it to get in? I have a friend who is contemplating buying a ticket from CA and wondering how likely he is to get in. Do you have any advice?? Please share if you do! - Lara (email: lbullock@UCSD.edu if answering here is weird) 2w
  •   vandalog @malaslala luckily I got in on the private view night, so I had my invite/ticket in advance and didn't have much to worry about. Right now, the online ticketing system is busted until Tuesday, so that doesn't fill me with confidence. But once that is back online, should be much easier to book a ticket in advance and not have to worry. 2w
  •   malaslala Thanks so much @vandalog ! I'll let him know! Love seeing your pics! 2w
