Jerry Saltz breaks it down for New York Magazine.
Some of my favorites
“As for artists, too many have been getting away with murder, making questionable or derivative work and selling it for inflated prices. They will either lower their prices or stop selling. Many younger artists who made a killing will be forgotten quickly. Others will be seen mainly as relics of a time when marketability equaled likability.”
“I hope many of the speculators who never really cared about art will go away. Either way, money will no longer be the measure of success. It hasn’t made art better. It made some artists—notably Hirst, Murakami, Prince, and maybe Piotr Ukla´nski—shallower.”
Check out some new work from Doug and Mike Starn. They have been one of my favorite artist duos, breaking the standards of photography for a while now.

They are also working on a permanant installation in the NYC Subway. I am wondering if that is part of the fare increase? You can see sketches on their site of the installation.
It’s helloween, and it’s time to make decorations. Here is a good one. Makezine has come up with a really cool way to turn a watermelon into a brain.
Via OhGizmo, we found this post via something else… anyway the point is guitar hero looks cool and everyone has it but do you really need to have a controller at this level? Although, I would pay money for a Ace Frehley Guitar Hero guitar that glows and shots fireworks and smoke…. Gene if your reading our blog, I know your are, I came up with it first. So I get a cut.

T-shirt of the week, and it’s only monday. I cannot remember where I found it but it’s a good one. Hi five!
FAILED TO REACH ESTIMATE.
By the look of the lots featured in this post, you would not think that there has been a huge correction in the street ‘urban’ art market, well there has. Most of the pieces covered in Interesting Lots hit their estimates or exceeded expectation but, on a whole these are rarities. I will cover this months auctions more in depth tomorrow, but for today, have a look at some of the winners and unfortunately the McGee above that was orphaned once again.
