Let's Read Art: Damien Hirst

Let's Read Art: Damien Hirst

Damien Hirst makes such interesting pieces I was curious what the boys would think. Below are the interpretations of Andy and Spencer (my sons) and myself.

WHAT DO YOU SEE?

  • an alien mother ship created a beach ball in a ginormous size and they're letting it fall down onto a city
  • those are knives!
  • beach ball heading towards it's doom
  • is that a fan?... yes blowing the ball into the air above the knives

WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT THESE FROM YOUR EXPERIENCE?

  • The beach ball is a star destroyer looking to destroy the land of knives
  • those are all things you might find at a BBQ
  • ...but arranged in a new way
  • whoa the color scheme is the same as the rubik's cube

WHY DID THE ARTIST PUT THIS ALL TOGETHER?

  • it stresses me out
  • the artist is showing that you shouldn't play with knives
  • yeah, they'll ruin your beach ball and fun
  • it's a lesson in tension

These are our interpretations, you may see something different. Oh, and I should mention that when we do this we don't read up about the piece until after we've looked at it.
