Re: Now you see it.....
I know how you feel. But the thing about the Turner Prize piece (by Martin Creed) is that it has all the constituents of a work of art, it just doesn't exist like one and our relationship to it is such that the viewer cannot relate to it like an object, sitting there in the gallery.
I know what you mean about the striving for originality these days, but this piece has a history - it's a piece that reminds me, for instance, of the minimalism of Donald Judd and it maybe works through some of judd's interests.
