Delightful. I love shit like this, it makes my inner autistic wet in the genital region.

I specifically flew to Hamburg for a weekend just so I could see this wonder of modern autism. I genuinely wept when I entered.

That's not even close to correct, though. There are entire musical styles dedicated to escaping repetition, and that definition pretty much rules out half of all popular classical music, too.

All you need to know about art is that if it's not some form of skillfully painted or sculpted piece of work with a classical or religious theme, lovely naked ladies (NO PUBES) are a bonus, then it's basically rubbish.

Sit down with a pencil and draw people. I couldn't afford to go to a still life class (Which is fucking amazing and the #1 thing you can do to improve as an artist), so what I did was just sit in a busy public area and draw the people that went past. It was a great way to improve.

Buy old junk from tips super cheap. Try and find a local arts recycling project, tons of free junk; The one near me makes you pay £10 a year for membership to go in and take whatever you want. Hm, use Tesco or similar packs of cheap printing paper to do 100's of cheap drawings for about £4-6 depending on how many pens or pencils you use, for all the repetitive practice involved in getting better at drawing. Steal from construction sites at night. If you have friends with office jobs ask them to keep an ear open for old technologiezz (monitors/computers/photocopiers/desks) and stuff that gets thrown out, a lot of places replace every few years and just send the old and perfectly working stuff off to tips. Read reviews and essays about art and artists free online, learn why you're make shit and everyone else isn't, and such (tate has a new video archive online which is quite good so far). Getting more skill sets just involves grabbing a book from the library or online and doing what it tells you a few times, then a few more hundred times till you mastered it. Drawing, just like the guy above said. If you go to busy libraries, over ground train stations, coffee shops, and etc, you'll find people who sit still for very long periods of time.
Depends on how you 'express your self' really. Also for more technical stuff you can usually sign up for night school, get a few lessons and access to all their equipment for very cheap. I use to do this when I was into printmaking, can't even comprehend how much a big press would be but I went to all three of the local colleges, but they might let you repeat the same ones again -I dunno, I'm not confrontational enough to let them realise I just wanted their print materials.

I shouldn't reply. There's no point. But I'm passionate about the topic. The simple fact is that without excellent instruction you will NEVER PROGRESS. Why? Because art, and the methods of it, are as elaborate as mathematics.

For example, the following transpired on 5 June 2035
[scene: the beach]
<Young Boy> Hello, Mr! You look really smart. you must be a scientist!
<Einstein> I am. As a matter of fact I'm Einstein clone 3281, my boy.
<Young Boy> Wow, how can I become a great scientist like you?
<Einstein> It's very simple. All you need is a sheet of paper and pencils.
<Young Boy> And elite education, membership in government research circles, and access to private cutting-edge research are of no use?
<Einstein> No use. All you need is pencils and paper.

Yeah, studying light (by studying I obviously mean studying by sketching) will bring insight to all of your work. You could spend 3 years drawing different sized boxes in different levels of light and you'd only improve.

Letters are just drawn shapes that we learn to use to signify events and emotions, right?

Letters can definitely be considered art - however we usually don't think it of the ones we're most familiar with. In Western societies, people find characters from Oriental scripts pleasing, and turn them into tattoos and such. In China, the reverse is true - they make merchandise (graphic t-shirts, for example) with text in the Latin alphabet, often without any idea what it means, so you end up with children's clothes shops stocking shirts with "fuck" and "i love racism" on them.

From a Fine art perspective (hurf student):

Letters, words, phrases ect. are all symbols/placeholders used by societies for emotional and intellectual response, and are thus an extremely valid vehicle to utilise, particularly in contemporary art which places dissemination of concept at a much higher level to aesthetic form (words and phrases are great for their malleablity). Not to say that the presentation of the words doesn't have a profound effect on how the message is conveyed (because it does, and has huge potential to change the whole peice).

In the end, the general response to "is x and x art?" is that anything can be art as long as it is scrutinised, deconstructed and conpared as art. The movement towards conceptualisation and installation has only reinforced this idea and semiotics has become a staple of the intellectual process of desconstruction.

In terms of whether typography can be classed as "good art" though is wholly dependant on how you decide to tackle the concept. calligraphy - adding curly loops onto things itself is fairly shallow, as is fonts ect. it's an artform, but it isn't necessarily art. To forgo the message implied in the actual text to alone look at the aesthetic in which it is presented is ridiculous; you need to scrutinise the entire peice and the aesthetic presentation needs to have a meaningful relationship with the diction of the text involved otherwise it's simply needless pretention of the INT THAT GUD espousers.

If you want to explore the possibilities of using text in art, remember to look at the big picture. Marrying the concepts together (aesthetic, diction and implication) has the potential to make incredibly powerful statements very elegantly.

If you know it is a forgery then it is a "replica" or "reproduction". It's really only a forgery if it is sold under dishonest circumstances.

There was an exhibition of forgeries in London a while ago, I never got to visit, but it did seem far more interesting to look at the forgeries, and the stories behind the forgeries, than to look at the original artworks themselves.
