Recursive Pizza

Artist John Riepenhoff and pizza chef Jason Todd made the above work entitled "Physical Pizza Networking Theory." In an interview about it, Riepenhoff said:

Physical Pizza Networking Theory is meant to address the ontology of the social as material in art. Using mise en abyme to illuminate a relationship between the layers of material and our experience, and meta symbolic experience of pizza as a hearth, as meeting point, as cultural convergence, as party, as sculpture, as gift, as collage, as pie, and individuals as ingredients within pieces of a social pie adding up to something greater than their whole in a deliciously simple way. This work of art celebrates the event and temporal moments of art-as-happening, document, and experience. Take a slice, be a part of Physical Pizza Networking Theory.

If you can't paint or sculpt, just produce any old crap and attach an arty-farty meaningless description to it. Job done - you're an artist. Next week, a bowl of peas becomes social commentary on the problems of over-population in the developing world.
