What a load of pretentious p1sh

In case you haven't guessed, this topic has been inspired by 'art'. No, not the swedish variety, but the awarding of the 2005 Turner prize. This year it was won by someone (i refuse to use the word artist, unless it is of the 'con' variety) who took a shed, turned it into a boat, sailed about a wee bit in it, then turned it back into a shed.

"...
Speaking about his artwork, Shedboatshed (Mobile Architecture No 2), he said he did not like to be thought of as eccentric because "that's not what my work is about. It's a serious business on many levels".

"It's about slowing things down, about trying to retard this incredible speed at which we live."

The artist recycles objects, reframing and reforming them for his installations

The artist describes his work as "the physical manifestation of a thought process".

Tate director Sir Nicholas Serota said the prize has always enjoyed controversy, and that it "confronts us with the most challenging art of the day"
..."

Eh???

Now...I'm not much of an art critic, but I knows what I likes and this definately aint it. A shed is not art, whether you turn it into a boat or not. It's a shed (or a boat)

So there !
