a study on decay and rauschenberg

does the goat have goat eyes?
yes it does sorta
I love investigating Rauschenberg's art visually, but you can't discuss a work like this without talking about decay. The newspaper and nonsense Rauschenberg collages onto his works continually decay, even the rubber will rot away slowly. His work is no longer about breaking the boundaries of painting, his works are now about age and rot. Who knows what this work looked like fresh, but it has been out of the fridge for a long time now. Those of us using non archival materials need to embrace this. Bring on the rot and the dust and let the work exist happily waiting to disintegrate in to the void...
No, im an idiot. This whole thought is stupid. Decay is not decay, fuck archival. im going mc donalds that's how you fucking do art
