Wrap Christo.

That'll teach him.

Christo, the Bulgarian artist, is perhaps best known for his 'wrappings', artworks where he wrapped an entire building or structure. At this moment, I believe he's turned New York's Central Park into a giant croquet yard with his project "The Gates" .

So, I propose the following: let's wrap Christo.

It could be a statement about how an artist is too engulfed in his own work to see the essence of it.

Or something.

       At least Christo uses his own money to fund his graffiti. Here in UK, our taxes are being used to pay some mad woman to chew up pieces of soap, spits the bits onto the walls in a public lavatory and spreads toilet paper on the floor.

       I wish I thought if this.   

       Very good idea. Profound.   

       Why is it that nomatter how often I click on the bun, I can only add +1?

       They're zeno clicks, always half of the one before.

       The orange makes the whole park look like its under construction.

       I like to take that jeanneclaude's hair and wrap in it in a hot oil conditioner, eeeeek
dentworth, Feb 22 2005

       I like it. And as someone already pointed out, he did it all with his own money. What baffles me is how someone with such crazy hair amassed so much money. That goes for both of them.

       Christo already wrapped himself in a self-portrait, you can see it in one of those portraits of artists in their environment-type books. Unfortunately I can't remember who took the photo, but it just shows what appears to be a guy wrapped in a canvas bag... of course, you can't tell if it's really him or not.

       I object to the placing of inverted commas around the word artist, implying that Christo is not an artist of any merit. ... begins to rant.....zzzzz   

       The wrap Christo idea is fine, but there is no need to insult the man's single minded (plus his partner) dedication to a challenging notion. [Angel] - I don't think you know how hard he works to make these pieces.   

       That which we don't understand or like is usually labelled as "stupid". It is only people who are stupid, or do you think that objects posses a measurable intelligence and intellect?   

       Great - then bring out the inanimate Objects IQ test and let's see who's smarter - "my money's on the tin opener" - "Mine's on that bucket of tar with the coat hanger sticking out of it" Last week a deceptively smart lamp shade walked away with the big prize, reducing an entire music centre to third place behind the hat stand.   

       You can all wake up now - I've stopped!

       I like Christo, but this is still a hilarious idea. I also like Tracy Emin, but I almost preferred the work "Two Naked Men Jump Into Tracy's Bed" (link).
