I read this article from beginning to end and I still don't understand the "artistic" principle behind it, yet I'd like to think that Leif Ove Andsnes has a great artistic sense, but greater than mine?
Slather paint on your bicycle tires and ride back and forth over a canvas, and you have a work of art worth (tens of?) thousands of dollars.
If you're not too stable on a bicycle, paint a straight line in black across a white canvas and call it "Study No. Seven" and you have another masterpiece.
And if that still doesn't work, become an art critic who writes: "That line of limitless infinity across the blanched and agonizing soul of the universe is a metaphor of the human struggle to get beyond itself and to become one with the ethos." (or is that ether?) Who cares, it's all so profoundly "meaningful"!
If I still had a day job, should I give it up?
