Can Destruction be Art?

Please watch these videos, and then write a 600 word essay in answer to the following questions: Did Rauschenberg complete a work of art or did he destroy one? Can you make this piece fit with any of the four "roles of the artist" that you covered back in Chapter 1? (Videos should open into a player within Bb)

If you cannot open the videos (and even if you can), please read these articles:
