Opinions on this?
Does a terabyte of illegal downloads constitute art? (Wired UK)
As Wired ask in their poll - genius or someone trying to be clever.
Waste of time if you ask me.

I aired my views on this sort of "art" before so won't go into that, but if the "artist" has indeed got illegal files on there, surely they are open to prosecution.
Or would a picture entitled "man molesting a 5 year old" simply be classified as art despite the content itself being illegal?

If the idea of art is to make you think, then yes it's art IMO. No less art than an unmade bed.

How many bets if someone tries to bust them it is actually empty. Either way I would say it is crud. Maybe if he had done something with the pedestal, or the case I would have to think for a second, but this is someone trying to be a smart ass. What ever your thoughts on graffiti this is no where in the same bracket.

is it just an empty external harddrive? or has someone plugged it in and checked?! fakeart

anything can be art, dependent on the viewer, so the 'ist it art?' question is redundant
However, I think it's a load of old tripe

errr, no. to my mind art is something visual, and that is just a hard drive. if they had actually pasted printed images of the contents on the outside of the case. then that would have constituted art in my oppinion.

Yes. From a legal standpoint at least. However, only in some countries.

From a moral standpoint, it wouldn't make it into a gallery. At all. Ever.

Yes, but that was a direct reply to MK-2 regarding the situation he proposed.
