AT THE HEIGHT OF THE PROJECT`S MEDIA FRENZY, LOCAL TV STATION ”DIGI ORADEA” HOSTED A ONE-HOUR TALK-SHOW CALLED ”GRAFFITI, ART OR VANDALISM”. MAIN SPEAKERS WERE DOINA TĂTAR, LOCAL ARTS AND CRAFTS TEACHER AND ANGELA LUPȘEA, HEAD OF A PUBLICLY FUNDED NGO DEDICATED TO LOCAL HERITAGE. ANGELA LUPȘEA IS DE JURE A LEGAL CONSULTANT WITHIN THE LOCAL COMMITTEE FOR ARCHITECTURE AND URBANISM; HOWEVER, HER INFLUENCE WITHIN THE ORGANIZATION EXCEEDS HER FORMALLY ASSIGNED ROLE. ANGELA LUPȘEA DECIDES UPON PLANNING POLICIES AT A MUCH LARGER EXTENT THAN RIGHTFUL – AND EDUCATED – ARCHITECTS. AS SUCH, SHE POSES AS AN ARCHITECT HERSELF, AND FROM THIS POINT OF VIEW, DURING SAID TALK-SHOW, SHE ISSUED STATEMENTS AND CONCLUSIONS WHICH TRESPASS FROM FALSE ARCHITECTURE AND URBANISM INTO THE FIELD OF THE ARTS. NOT ONLY DID ANGELA LUPȘEA PUBLICLY EVALUATE THE ARTISTIC VALUE OF THIS PROJECT, BUT ALSO THE AUTHOR AND THE CURATOR, FINDING THEM ”WANTING”. SINCE DILETTANTES ARE LARGELY TOURISTS OF THE ABSTRACT, GRAYZONE TOURIST IS A COLLECTION OF PERSONALIZED SOUVENIRS ANT TRINKETS, ASSOCIATE WITH TOURISM, RECORDING HER TRAVELS THROUGH THE LAND OF ART THEORY. ANGELA LUPȘEA ALSO PUBLICLY STATED THE AUTHOR`S FACE IS UGLIER THAN A PENIS. THE CENTERPIECE IS A MEDALLION MADE OF GOLD, BARING MARKINGS FOR SILVER, IMPLYING ANGELA`S FACE DEVALUES GOLD.
