    that's one way to overcome the stigma of the blank canvas.
    that's funny. what will they think of next?

    I don't think the end result would hold my interest for very long. It reminds me of spin art where you add the paint as the little canvas spins around on a machine. You find them here at carnivals and state fairs.

    If this is Art, your art store should provide guns, not brushes.

    Some murderers concider their victims to be 'masterpieces' because they can sense some sort of beauty within... And we call this kind of people 'Hentai'. But many of us don't know how far away we are from being 'Hentai'.

    What if they only wound the canvas? Do we follow the trail of paint and put it out of it's misery?

    I'm sure they have a specialty audience.

    Gotta have a gimmick, eh? I prefer the guy from the 60s who painted up naked women and had them roll around on huge white canvas.

    Personally it seems more an exercise in physics than art to me. If I capture images of particle collisions from the LHC particle collider would that also be art.

    I like to see some aspect of craftsmanship in art myself, but i'm not a curator in Milan or New York so I dont get to decide these things

    As pointed out by D.Akey this sort of stuff has kind of been done through the 60's and 70's. I'm reminded of the artist Ivan Durant that slaughtered animals on the steps of the Melbourne art gallery or Stelarc who has done such extreme things as hanging himself horizontally by meathooks. The 'shock and awe' era of art is nothing new.
