The Null Device

Meanwhile in New York, the governor has asked prison officials to ban convicted killers from exhibiting art at prison art shows. This ban was prompted by serial killer and irrepressible artist Arthur Shawcross, 11 of whose works (including innocuously cheesy fairy-tale fantasy paintings and a sketch of Princess Diana) were exhibited at the Corrections on Canvas exhibit. Shawcross, like a latter-day De Sade of kitsch, sparked outrage two years ago by having paintings and poems smuggled out of prison and sold on eBay.
