Spend a Lot of Money and Get Nothing! What?
This makes no sense at all, but there are many people out there who have so much money to burn, what would that be like, that they will, sometimes, spend crazy amounts of money for, well, not much. In fact, not much here means NOTHING!
True story.....an art collector just plunked down $18,000 at an auction for invisible art work by Italian artist Salvatore Garau. Did you pick up on the key word here, invisible!
The invisible work of art, titled "I Am," may seem like nothing, but it's actually a whole lot of something according to the artist. Garau says the invisible piece is a metaphor of our time. He explains, the void "has energy that condenses and transforms itself into particles, in short, in us! When I decide to ‘exhibit’ an immaterial sculpture in a given space, that space will concentrate a certain quantity and density of thoughts in a precise point, creating a sculpture that from my title alone will take the most varied forms. After all, don’t we give shape to a God we have never seen?”
It made a lot of sense to the buyer who, along with the invisible sculpture which he can display anywhere he wants, also gets a certificate of authenticity, according to the website HypeBeast.
Come on, get real. This artist dreamed up a feeling, said it was there, and someone bought it, for $18,000! All he got was a certificate of authenticity. The artist actually suggests displaying the piece in a 5x5-foot area free from obstructions. Seriously.
Thanks for nothing!
