Isn’t art supposed to be messy?

Someone in the art tags, IntoForm, posted a link to an Ursus Wehrli TED lecture. I loved it! It was just wild. He deconstructed so many famous artworks to “tidy them up,” and it was fascinating, sometimes even creating an interesting piece of art in itself. Mr. Wehrli is Swiss, and apparently they are known not only for timeliness, precision timepieces, secure banking, and fine chocolate; they are also known for tidiness. A little OCD, Mr. Wehrli? Please check out the video at the bottom…I hope you’ll be as entertained as I was.
