Artsy Fartsy


Toilet paper roll art by a French artist - Junior Jacquet.  By definition, it is art.  So many definitions of the word, one would have to look at the etymology of the word art.  Let's just go with the Latin definition of art as a skill or craft.  
Artists have been creating since the dawn of man; containers used to hold paints date back 100,000 years.  I've read companies are doing away with the toilet paper rolls.  Guess this art will really be a rarity in eons to come. They'll be studying and describing it as a time when the world was wasteful which deeply touched the artist...

  2. Donna,

    I seem to have stepped off the Earth somewhere, and none of my comments have been appearing. A few have not made it to several other places, so I assume it's something in this new provider that Chris installed a few weeks ago.

    Hope all is well with you out Oklahoma way!

  3. Those are really quite amazing - such expression. I like the fact that this comes out of recycled materials.

  4. Just wanted to mention that I also have been getting comments back to my email saying they were undeliverable or something like that. Must be something going on with the comment section on blogger.
