The janitor won’t discuss art with us, it’s just not that important to him. He isn’t concerned with art or its meaning, he just wants to do his job and go home. We’re asked to leave by one of the custodians. When asked, he also refuses to discuss the meaning of the work. I only work here, he says. You’d be better off asking one of the tour guides. But apparently all of the tour guides have gone home. We ask the ticket vendor, who’s closing off his booth, if he knows what it’s about. I don’t want to talk about it, he says. It depresses me in the most terrible way. We eventually track down the artist through the Internet and ask him what it means. What cheek, he replies, as if I’d ever tell you. You’ll just have to think for yourself, won’t you? You fucking cheap asshole, we reply. I bet it doesn’t even mean anything. The meaning of the work is in the eye of the beholder, the artist replies. Fuck you, you fraud, we mail back, it’s just another cheap abstract art hustle.
