After reading “Art in the Age of Digital Distribution” I looked into some of the websites. I was prepared to do a response to the article as a whole, but after visiting I changed my mind and my topic of discussion. That website is creepy. Artistic? Maybe, and interesting that the real artist has not been discovered, but there is some crazy stuff on there that shouldn’t be written and should not claim to be written by a “nearly 13 year old” girl. There’s a page looking into the best way to kill yourself when you’re under 13, a digitally enhanced picture of a group of plush bunnies that claim to have all sorts of gross distortions that I couldn’t decipher, and there are pages with extremely sexually provocative material. I oscillate between thinking “what a grotesque and disturbed girl” and “what a pedophile that created this website.”
