well, in this case it was fruitless. Webster's online dictionary cites 'Artspeak' as An early simple language for plotter graphics. wow. it does not offer any other uses, neither does it call it a noun or verb nor does it assign an historical etymology to it. shocking when you consider that leagues of professors and art students, critics and writers who practice it on a daily basis.
here, in the spirit of OXOgraphy, let me define it.
n. + v. conflatulance
1. Superhuman effort to imitate, alter or supplement the work of the artist through the written language.
a. The delusional utterance or arrangement of words in a manner that adversely affects the artists intention.
b. To lecture on the practice of these activities.

2. High quality though unwarranted verbal suggestion and aesthetic execution of these ideas.

well then. if a picture is worth a thousand words, then this video is worth it all.
until next time, enjoy.
