Well, yes, actually, it IS art.

"Tim Nobel and Sue Webster take piles of trash and make art into them... but sometimes the art isn't apparent until you see it in a different light."

I have always been of the opinion that art takes both skill and vision. Sticking big rocks out in a park or burying Cadillacs up to their steering wheels has never really struck me as "art". It is SOMETHING, but art, it is not. Cristo was a con artist, in my estimation.

So, when I saw that someone was making "art" out of "garbage", I went "uh-huh." But when I really looked at these pictures, I was pretty floored.
