I really liked this last episode where they were taken to an electronics "junk yard" and given the task of putting together a sculpture from whatever they could grab and drag back to the studio with them.
Miles - who admits he has OCD - got so disturbed by the mess he took a nap in the junk yard. He also took a nap on his sculpture during the showing. I won't say more - no spoilers here - but he is one of the more interesting participants.
I liked this challenged and kind of wished I was a part of it. It looked like great fun and I love the idea of re-purposing trash into art. Makes me want to run out and pillage my neighbors trash cans.
I rather liked most of the efforts put forth - I thought the judges were a bit harsh on a few. I always keep in mind that art is subjective and each viewer brings their own perspective and life experiences to the party, including so called experts, so all art competitions are a bit pointless in a way. Art is such a personal thing to both the artist and those who experience the work that I've always taken all proclamations of "good art/bad art" with a grain of salt.

Would you like to have "nap" as your art medium?
Have a good day and keep creating no matter what anyone says to you.
