Jeff Koons Must Die!!

April 4, 2011

Jeff Koons Must Die!!! The Video Game from Hunter Jonakin on Vimeo.

“Jeff Koons is one of the most polarizing and well known contemporary artists living today. He attempts to elevate the banal by constructing large metal sculptures that resemble balloon animals, oil paintings that contain subject matter derived from digital collage, and large-scale pornographic photographs featuring the artist and his former wife, to name a few. All of Koons’s art is constructed by assistants. In general, viewers love or hate Koons and his work, and that is why he was chosen as the subject matter for this piece.”
It’s critiques like this that give me a real appreciation for video game makers. Koons is the best example of the times we live in. Art production so influenced by the market, its sole purpose is to accrue value. Totally vapid and devoid of anything to say, it reflects the content of large box stores and parking lots across the USA. Who the hell wants any of that crap anyhow? Baffles me.
Another game worth checking out is Faith Fighter, by MolleIndustria. Enjoy.
