"Complex Shit".... its art! or is.... it art?

House-sized dog poo causes chaos at museum

A giant inflatable dog poo by American artist Paul McCarthy blew away from an exhibition in the garden of a Swiss museum, bringing down a power line and breaking a greenhouse window before it landed again, the museum said Monday.

The art work, titled Complex Shit, is the size of a house.

The wind carried it 200 metres from the Paul Klee Centre in Berne before it fell back to Earth in the grounds of a children's home, museum director Juri Steiner said.

The inflatable poo broke the window at the children's home when it blew away on the night of July 31, Mr Steiner said.

The art work has a safety system which normally makes it deflate when there is a storm, but this did not work when it blew away.

Mr Steiner said Mr McCarthy had not yet been contacted and the museum was not sure if Complex Shit would be put back on display.

Now, for my take on it... what? First off.. kudos on the heading! Second, hats off to you for such an interesting title to the artwork. Third, am I really suppossed to appreciate this and find the "quality" or "creativity" in this piece? I am baffled. Anyone else have an opinion on this? For a better idea of what we are talking about... I searched high and low for Complex Shit by McCarthy... and guess what, I found it.


Sorry for the "crappy" image, but I was hard pressed to find ANY image at all. Here is what else is in the Exhibition in the Art Playground, along with the Complex Shit-


The good news is that at least when I google my name followed with "complex shit" nothing appears! Whew! So, whats your opinion of McCarthy's Complex Shit?
