Black sculptural chairs

Where is the border between art and design? At what point everyday object becomes a work of art? It is surprising how quickly the balance shifts recently, how easily we began to accept abstract forms and invite them to our homes. What is your opinion?

  3. It's funny you mentioned Gaga, I just checked her videos last week. I didn't know who she was (I rarely watch TV) I was amazed how visually elaborate pop videos have become... sublime art and kitsch melts... how many artists cooperated to create the videos? (Never mind the music)
    Is it the pop that conquers the art or the other way around?
