Richard Healy lecture

So yeah we had a lecture of ex Met student, Interactive Artist...Richard Healy. The lecture was a good diversion for the day and had some good points to it. I was interested in the progression of lowly art grad student to lofty practising artist.

The only criticism I had was that he made a comment of that a part od one of his exhibits didn't have any relevant meaning (the symbology of the motifs of certain flags). I for one maybe a stickler for detail but if the artist didn't put thought into all his work, why should the consumer.

He did show slides of other work that I thought was of interest, these were of art magazines being over-painted with Constructivist lines of different colours and widths to symbolise their containment. I thought that had a good deal of ingenuity...
