red icebergs

  yeah so this guy went to greenland with 780 gallons of red paint and used three fire hoses to paint an iceberg red...the picture looks cool but at the same time, how long is it gonna be that way? not to be anal but i kinda feel like the worlds all polluted and messed up enough with people already and now some guys gone and violated even the icebergs in the name of art...can we not have one natural landscape to look at in national geographic without power lines or mcdonalds arches or RED PAINT?!! i guess im just pissed cuz those icebergs really dont belong to him and i feel like he should of asked before he messed with something that everyone else has to look at...

  not to mention the paint companies, if he didn't have the express written consent of these companies he never should have re-distributed it or re-transmitted it in any way!

  Why not just do it with photoshop or something?

But then he wouldn't be in the media and he couldn't call himself an artist.

looks like a scene where a bunch of penguins started talking and one goes,
" why don't we all go paint the own red tonight huh guys?"

That's kinda weird...

Does he own the iceburg? Does anybody? Who are going to save the polar bears?

  funny to think about what "art" is. if this had been done before (even once)people would have said, "that's not art. you're just painting another iceberg". But because it was novel and on a grand scale it's elevated to a work of art.

*Ludwig says he would have painted it white

  Wouldn't that simply ravage the Arctic ecosystem? Hundreds of gallons of red paint is pretty much known to be a bad thing eco-wise.

Somebody give me the bears' email address and I'll let 'em know they can crash at my house for a while. Ice, fish, candy, and soda. ;)
