It was impressive how the flowers stayed alive without watering. Must be good soil?

i like the more junkyard style stuff. i wish we had some, i've been checking the dumpster at the youth center behind our site but haven't found much. i might venture out to some dumpsters further away.

I do like the title of this post, but how do you think it's ridiculous to claim that something is more creative than something else? Do you think everything is equally creative? The Sistine Chapel isn't any more or less creative than anything else? No better or no worse (creatively speaking) than a two year old swirling fingerpaints randomly?

What I was getting at was: I think it’s ridiculous to make a claim that something is more creative when the person making the claim doesn’t have a context in which to make such a statement. Maybe we have never heard of Tetris... (and therefore had no opportunity to creatively use that comparison). If creativity is characterized by originality and expressiveness, then creativity is also subjective. That guy cannot make a judgment on our creativity is he doesn't also know what's original or expressive for us.

hmmm, as a gamer myself I can definately see where you might see "tetris" from the Garden. But also being a student of "medieval art" I have seen allot of Cathedral floorplans and can definately see simalarities between the two. To be fair though, tetris is just groupings of four squares, so you can see tetris in allot of things. If you stare hard enough at tiles you can see tetris. You can see it in brick patterns, tapestry, etc..... basically what I am saying is I think the Cathedral comparison is valid, and probably a little more descriptive of the site since I have witnessed it in person.
