Why is there so much art about nothing these days? It all looks nice, but it never says anything, there’s no point, and as soon as I am done watching or looking at it I forget about it entirely. It bugs me. It’s a tease, promising an engaging moment between the viewer and the screen, and then turning out to be about bugger all.

Perhaps we all finally have nothing left to say. There are no more stories to be told, no stigmas to be broken, no new ground to cover. Everyone said everything important and now it’s like we’re sitting in the parlour having our tea, with an uncomfortably long silence. Everyone wants to pretend like the stalled conversation is okay with them, “everyone has stopped talking, an angel must have flown by.”

Somebody, for the love of all that is holy, make some art that blows me away!
