  1. Here’s what stuck out the most to me:

    “I am inspired by the conflict between an ideal state of mind and and an imperfect reality.”

    How do you make a mistake like that?

  2. “I am inspired by the conflict between an ideal state of mind and and an imperfect reality.”

    Man, that sentence is so screwed up, I quoted it wrong:

    “I am inspired by the conflict between an ideal state of and and an imperfect reality.”

    I think it should look like this: “…an ideal state of ‘and’, and…”. But, I could be wrong.

  3. Obviously, this guy has (had? This looks like a tombstone!) a career in marketing.

  4. The repetition of “and” was the first thing that leapt out at me, pokerwolf. I think your first (mis-)reading was possibly close to the artist’s intention, as I suspect the first “and” is a typographical error, and “mind” would seem to make sense in the context.

  5. A fact about art school: the only thing you really learn is how to write convoluted bollocks like this. Unfortunately, a large proportion of art students are dyslexic, so the writing of the bollocks ends up as more of a challenge than producing the work.
