Syllojism Episode 5 - Canonical Visual/Spatial Intelligence - Playing like an Artist with Cas3y White

Who makes the goodest art?

Syllojism is a bi-weekly, culture, and philosophy challenge podcast on the edge of chaos.

CHALLENGE: Create an original work of visual art.

We invited artist and comedian Cas3y White to help explore the idea of evaluating subjective qualities of art.  Casey loves injecting a bit of science into his art to make all kinds of monsters, just like the one he created when he told Brett he loved his painting.

I made a lot of stuff and was even accused of not properly completing the challenge. I make a lot of stuff, and share it with Brett and Cas3y, but it was too hot for prime time and can only be found in the bonus content, released every Thursday.

To view evidence in my defense, be even more entertained, and support our pursuit of superior intellect, consider upgrading!

Here are the works of art from which we are being judged:

Apparently, this was the work before Brett messed it up:

Amazon Estates, Natasha Mott - Get the NFT, DAWG

I mean. The winner is obvious.
