THIS IS WHY PEOPLE HATE ART

"Weight is a value for me... the balancing of weight, the diminishing of weight, the addition and subtraction of weight, the rigging of weight, the propping of weight, the placement of weight, the locking of weight, the psychological effects of weight, the disorientation of weight, the disequilibrium of weight, the rotation of weight, the movement of weight, the directionality of weight, the shape of weight. I have more to say about the perpetual and meticulous adjustments of weight, more to say about the pleasure derived from the exactitude of the laws of gravity. I have more to say about the processing of the weight of steel, more to say about the forge, the rolling mill and the open-hearth."

Richard Serra, in Richard Serra Sculpture (New York: Pace Gallery, 1989), n.p.

Thank you.

But this has nothing on the utter banality of 'chairs in trees.'
