Pyramids in London

I often wonder about the sanity of people who run art colleges. Many of them are so obsessed with the "cutting edge" that they've lost touch with both art and society. Here's a case in point, one of two pyramids covered in scrawled names of living billionaires with their life expectancy. It's by Robert Brown BA, who is currently doing an MA Fine Art. His pyramids were installed yesterday at Chelsea College of Art and Design in its Rootstein Hopkins Parade Ground, London. The College actually commissioned this eyesore! What is cutting edge about it? Pyramids were old hat more than 2000 years ago and the warning about death coming to us all was an obsession during the Middle Ages, due to the Black Death. What a waste of money! Click the title link.
