    "...making something that means something"

    The time of getting fame for your name on its own is over. Artwork that is only about wanting to be famous will never make you famous. Any fame is a by-product of making something that means something. You don't go to a restaurant and order a meal because you want to have a s**t.

    It's unbelievable that actually this is happening! :)

    That's a great quote. I've been thinking a lot lately about what it means to be an artist, and basically much of my job is to make something that is of value to others. I've been thinking about how value is attributed to objects, and often it's based on the narratives that we attach to them. Guy Debord believed that a museum was a place where the history of objects was enshrined, instead of the history of lives lived.

    fame is over-rated, anyway—when you are heralded, you're praised for an aspect that, over time, becomes an anchor of sorts. goes against a deep yearning to be freely instead of maintaining that pose that people applauded you for...

    If a person sets his goal on fame, if he ever gets it, then its over. Fame for fame´s sake is a futile shallow goal. Aim for change and awareness, thats what i hear Banksy saying.
