09/06/2001 Entry: "Public Art."
Sure, artists want people to respond to their work. Maybe even like it. So what happens if you try to make art by public opinion poll? And how about music? I have to get this CD. (There's also an interview with the artists/composers and a sample of the statistically most-loved and most-hated songs on this episode of This American Life.)
The scary part is my immediate first thought on hearing the statistically-least-enjoyable song was that it sounded an awful lot like some of my most beloved Nina Hagen albums. And the Roommate, who is less fond of Ms. Hagen, said...the same thing.
