Cogito Ergo Dumb.
I wasn’t sure whether to include this or not. On the one hand, it’s pretty bloody stupid. But on the other hand, you’ve got to salute the absolute upper echelon, top-level sh*thousery. Italian artist Salvatore Garau sold a sculpture for $18,000 this week. Given the exorbitant sums that you often see art go far, that doesn’t seem all that noteworthy. But allow me to add one more tiny detail: that sculpture only exists in his head. In other words, it doesn’t exist. Titled “I am” like a piss-taking cogito ergo sum deduction of reality, the work is said to exist only in a vacuum – whatever that means. Garau even had the nerve to tell the buyer that it should be displayed in an unobstructed, private area that is five by five feet. And I thought some NFTs seemed a bit silly, but this is really something else. All of a sudden, spending 5 grand on an NFT digital racehorse doesn’t seem like such a bad investment.Read Original Story
