"What Is Art? is a hilarious scripto-visual Dadaist-Derridean quest to solve the impossible question, 'What is art?' Using, ironically, anti-art strategies, appropriation, violation, bad puns, found objects, offensive imagery, collage, and re-cycled past works culled from his own repertoire, Norman conquers the detritus of the high and the low in his own special recipe for bricolage. Using his book as a literal potboiler, he chops up and dumps in his ingredients to produce his own unique stew as he simmers over the nature of creative intervention in our wacky (both cruel and comic) world." -- James Hugunin
