I was walking through this car park when I noticed a wheelie bin with a melted lid. It looked like something I would find in a museum of contemporary art, with a meaning of course to give it some kind of artistic value.

I am not a fan of much contemporary art. Are you? For me, it just seems like a lot of the art is very overrated and some people tend to over think what they are looking at, especially if there is a meaning or message associated with it.

This particular piece of art reflects the sad correlation between laziness and accomplishment. Human beings can be lazy but still get their own way, the art tells the story of a person too lazy to put items in the bin, instead leaving them on top of the lid and waiting for other people of forces to do the work instead. The lazy person succeeded in placing the items in the bin but without the good intentions, despite the general population not knowing any better. It could have also been an intentional fire, an immoral action leading to waste being properly disposed of. It is true that some people do bad things with positive outcomes, despite the positive outcomes not being intended or desired. 

I think this would fit into a museum nicely.

Can I have my paycheck please?

  1. LOL this is amazing!! I completely agree that it should go into a museum of contemporary art. Much more entertaining than a red wall with a white stripe across it that I saw at a contemporary art museum once. Love the analysis, too. Hope they’re taking submissions 😉

    1. Haha, yeah the artwork you described doesn’t sound too appealing… I’ll stick to finding art in car parks haha. Thanks for the kind words 🙂
