Both works scream at me the culture of excess and ignorance to nature, both are colorblind and desensitized: using the loudest available medium at hand, progressing from quieter scream of the 60's to over the edge scream of 2013 -- did 60's ruined our aural receptors to the level that requires even larger waves to penetrate insensibility? Color is both particle and a wave and can be easily translated into sound, and if I treat both these artworks as a musical notation, it maps to corresponding technologies of their time -- tape and mp3. Both artists don't give a shit about nature of color itself, especially wall painter -- such a waste of materials from my painter's point of view. 60's artwork still tries to fit into a shape, aiming to be avant-guardish, and second one confirms to 'oversized me', and tries to sell the video, because it's kind of hard to sell the wall itself, if you are not Michelangelo...
