Does anyone remember Cornelia Parker's - The Maybe. It was installation at the Serpentine Gallery in London where the actress Tilda Swinton slept - or pretended to sleep - in a perspex box for eight hours a day over a period of a month. The difference between Parker and Beckham is intent. She is a conceptual artist who plays with ideas and objects to create meaningful states and he is a footballer shamelessly addicted to money and fame. If you believe the rather grandiose idea that football is the 'working man's ballet' then Beckham could be regarded as an artist on the football pitch.

The whole thing is riduculous - Beckham is dull enough when he's wide awake let alone sleeping.

How come no ones has mentioned that Beckham's real art is that which he creates on the field.

Oh, wait.

Either too true or too trite.

I am going to go eat a biscuit and decide.

probably would only be 'marginally' more boring than most DVD issues; might not want to pay the 'price' though! Shocked

I think its clever and well done to the artist
for finding a fresh and new way to portray
a subject that has been way too commercialized and overexposed!

I'm sorry Confused but I don't really think he is sleeping for real - and if he is - he is really bane to be fixing his hair and wetting his lips while asleep!

Yes, I see what you mean. So angelic, no apparent snoring or dribbling, no mess what-so-ever ...

Well, I like soccer and Becks.....too bad he didn't
get the goal for the UK! However, true
sportsmanship may be more knowing how to lose
gracefully than in winning! Go Becks!

It depends on how you define art.........Michaelangelo's stone out-of -proportion giant " David" or " poetry in motion/ David Beckham?"
