What did we do before “studies”?
In one test, there was a 100-word text based on “The Lovers,” a surrealist painting by Rene Magritte in which two lovers kiss, their heads strangely covered in white cloths.
Half of these texts, attributed to the persons pictured, were dull or factual (“Are they being held hostage?”), and the other half were inspired or conceptual (“It is perhaps an indicator that looks fade and in the end it does not matter as you will always be left with the personality of someone”).
Ironically but predictably, the creators of this subjective “study” are the stupid ones:
Why is it “dull” to ask if they are hostages?
Why is it “inspired” to blather on ungrammatically in cliches?
(Oh, and it’s “The Lovers II‘ btw. But then I would say that, wouldn’t I?)
