well that is what I am do in any way. IT is I looking at myself smoking a cigarette and who knows what else is going through my mind. The videos were done with the idea to just record what I did. And what was recorded was what I did. I was not talking about other artists, I was recording myself and only myself. I like to smoking cigarettes. And I am in my room in the video. It is an ordinary day. And ordinary thing for me to do in my life. So that fact that you are bothered by the video indicates to me that you irritated about normality. and irritated about my good looks and that I am so good looking and I can smoke a cigarette while I look this sexy.

I see where you are coming from..its been done before many times...lots of Indy movies use this method and current tv...you should take a look at it again and see what else can come from it

I understand that Daniel. You say "It is like I am looking at myself through the camera" which is not merely a simile, it is actuality. That is exactly what it is. I suppose it is contemporary art in as much as it has created a discourse between you and me. I am sorry if I offended you earlier when I used the word 'shit' to describe your work. I was being childish and reactionary Daniel. I just don't see why we should find your image interesting ourselves? At what point in your career are you if you don't mind me using the word career? I just find it a little contrived Daniel. It is a video of you doing nothing and because of the context of which it is displayed and the fact that you call yourself an artist you have made it become something..........but, fundamentally it is still nothing. I hope that if anything, this doesn't reflect your attitude towards being an artist or artists in general. "I am cool" seems to me, in a sense, to be an irreverent dig at the ideas and associations we have of artists. This 'dig' as I have called it is simply not clever or original enough to be a success I believe, however, it did make me think. I hope you continue to nurture your ideas Daniel.

I am commenting on my nature as a modern artist actually. It is a recording of what I am.

This is a crock of shit. I suppose thats what you were going for. Are you trying to comment on the nature of the modern artist? Presumptious, arrogant, work-dodging, prancing, posing.........erm.........smoking? I am interested to know why you made these videos?
