People suck. Italian artist, Salvatore Garau, sold an invisible sculpture for 15,000 euros. That's equivalent to $18,300.
We now live in a world where anything can be worth something. A LeBron James highlight that can be ripped off of YouTube sold for over $40,000. A dying company like GameStop was the hottest stock on the market. Now, we have people selling absolutely nothing for close to 20 grand.
Here's what Garau has to say about the "sculpture":
"The vacuum is nothing more than a space full of energy, and even if we empty it and there is nothing left, according to the Heisenberg uncertainty principle, that 'nothing' has a weight,"
Artists are the worrssssttttttt. Just admit that you scammed someone $18,000! We don't need some sophisticated explanation on why an invisible sculpture is worth something. In my opinion, there's nothing worse than a snobby artist or collector that tries to justify the worth of an art piece. Remember the one guy that duct-taped a banana on a blank canvas?
This banana sold for $150,000. Literally 10 seconds of work and someone made $150,000. How is this not a crime?
I'm sure people will come at me for not appreciating or understanding art. I'll admit I don't know anything about art. But only lunatics would buy air for $18,000.
