Golden deer sculptures, a trope of the art fair, has finally migrated to the animated GIF world. And I have the same head scratching response to Jonathan Monaghan‘s GIF of couch giving birth to a doe, as I do any of those sculptures. What is this saying about wealth? What did this couch have sex with to become pregnant? (Okay, that question is art work specific.) And why do people find deers so compelling?
I don’t have the answers to these questions, but I suspect there are few collectors and artists out there who do. Someone poll these people and figure this trend out.
