Miles is next. He tells them that he was inspired by a lack of sleep to make the most difficult place to sleep. They love that he activated the work by sleeping in it, and somehow they even love the buttholes (which I do not get at all). They think it's theatrical and fragile, which is difficult to achieve. Trong's next, talking about his generic couch potatoes. He says he's in it, and then tells them that the Tom Friedman reference is an inside art reference. They all said they learned nothing about him in this. Miles raises his hand to tell Trong the piece is distractingly boring, even though the ideas were there. One of the judges asks if this piece would be in a retrospective of Trong's work, and Trong says he's not sure. Moving on to Abdi. He explains that he wanted to show a kid who was more a product of the media than of their parents. They see it as a self-portrait of him, and loved the way he handled the materials. In the back room, Judith says that "what was said to Trong was over-the-top harsh." She's obviously talking to Miles, who is already asleep on the other couch.
The judges talk about how great the show was, because most of them made it so personal. In case we didn't get it: They loved Nicole, Abdi and Miles (though Bill thought the anuses were overkill). They didn't like Trong (insider art jokes didn't show them how much he knows), Jaime or Judith. Bill thought the other judges were too nice to Judith, who didn't explain what she did at all. They've made up their minds, and bring Miles, Nicole and Abdi out. China AGAIN tells them what the challenge was. She says the winner will receive immunity. And the winner is... Miles. Again. He made a true work of art. It's actually pretty cool that he won despite having immunity. Miles interviews if they'll keep giving him free food, free beer and art supplies, he'll stay and keep doing this as long as they'll let him.
