Art? If I make a statue and tell you it is art, it is art, no matter what you think of it. If I tell you it is an ancient pagan god or a Leprechaun turned to stone by an evil spirit or anything other than a work of art, it is no longer art no matter the original intent or how artistic it may seem . It is a fake. The Soons 3D stuff is not art having been sold as science. It seems to not be science. That is regrettable.
It is a picture like this that makes this worrisome.
