New Development: Virtual Klein

Anthropometries for Quake 4 (After Yves Klein) from Chaz Evans on Vimeo.

Now, i'm going to have to pre-emptively beg forgiveness as I know this isn't a lolcaption as such and I know this may also be considered shameless self-blogging as well. But if there is any audience out the who has the slightest chance of appreciating this I figure its the type who enjoys contemporary art mingling with internet cat slang.

I've started experimenting with merging 20th century art figures with elements of commercial video games. Here I figure, why not paint the virtual quake body the way Klein takes to the naked ladies? Theres more explanation on the vimeo page. Hope you enjoy.

Dan Flavin - Untitled (in Honor of Harold Joachim) (1977)

For the actual museum guards reading this, i know, this was probably too soon. Thanks for the suggestion Krissy.

Reader Submission Fun!

Please enjoy this potpourri of captions courtesy of Shaun B and Nike D of Top to bottom: Still from Benuel and Dali's Un Chien Andalou (1929), Robert Rauschenberg's Erased De Kooning (1953) and more lolBarney (we will never get enough) with Cremaster 3 (2002).

Thanks to all those still reading and submitting. Apologies for my absence.

Meret Oppenheim - Object (Le Dejeuner en fourrure) (1936)

Thanks to Missy for this suggestion that was far too excellent to pass up.  Apologies for the gross negligence in respect to new content.  Special thanks to those who still check this blog out from time to time.

Janine Antoni - Gnaw (1992)

So Janine Antoni took a 600 pound block on chocolate and a 600 pound block of lard, gnawed off some corners and sides with her own teeth, then fashioned the chewed lard into lipstick and the the chewed chocolate into heart shaped chocolate boxes without any chocolate in them. The lard and chocolate left behind on the large blocks are still as delicious today as they were in 1992.

Accolades go to Lydia A. for this highly ambitious two-part caption. (1992)

Cai Guo-Qiang - Inopportune: Stage One (2004-08)

It took a Chinese artist to uncover how badassedly patriotic a car bomb can look. Way to go Cai. (2004-08)
