Earlier this week, The Colbert Report’s guest was Paola Antonelli, MoMA’s Senior Curator of Architecture and Design. The interview was to talk about the Applied Design Exhibit. She talked about something that caused Internet buzz more than a year ago. Massoud Hassani’s Mine Kafon is brilliant, tragic, beautiful and haunting. Mine Kafon makes tears roll down your face while you smile. It is functional art. Not everything that someone declares art is easily understood. This is art.
Art is… feelings that you can *touch.
*Museums define art differently. They don’t even let you touch the wall.
