[challenge entry] Two lines!!!!!
Dear User C,

I'm not obsessed by my web site, but of course I have an obligation to ensure it functions properly. There are 15,512,865 views a year - based on the average of 42,501 per day from last week.
People in Denmark don't say it's crap. Not because they are polite, but because Danes love people that do something different and stick to it.
Dear user C, now you have to be careful about your blood pressure. Take a deep breath.
Peter Alexandrof from Noosa Gallery in Queensland, Australia has reviewed submissions from “leading artists around the world” and he has selected 10 world artists for the '10 world artists show 2005/2006'. One of them was me. Are you still there, User C? Because now it comes: One of the works he selected was 'challenge':

I think it's OK - I wouldn't pay for it myself, but I think The C's being a bit harsh myself.

You're writing this to "User C" who, at some point in the past said your work was
nothing but easily drawn shapes and lines and now you can rub his/her face in it because you've been selected to appear on a list. Somewhere.

Or is it all just surreal madness?

edit : Are you that fella who did the strange abstract line sculpture... things?

but is it art?

# No
I don't think so any way. I beleive art should require at least some skill and vision.
Thats just plain and simple crap really.
