What you always wanted to do in art class

I remember my high school art teacher telling my class that "the process can be just as beautiful as the work itself." This sounded ridiculously campy to me at the time, I mean, a painting of a bowl of fruit is great, but who cares how it got there? Recently I started doing some research on the work of Lil Picard and performance art, and I started to see what all of my teacher's cheesy lines were about. Today I came across a video of a group of people simply pouring cups of different colored paint on top of a white block. The result itself is great, but watching the time-lapse footage of it all happening is incredible. But why describe it to you when there's YouTube? Here's the video:
