You're too late. I need to find a fence. Anyone interested?

So his art is made with cryptocurrency?

trying to fence a famous artwork like that?  you madman.
if you were stealing it with a private collector already lined up that's one thing.  but you'll never be able to sell something that well known on the open market.  everyone knows what it looks like!

This guy plagiarized my work. Every worthwhile piece of art I've ever created has been imaginary.

I already took it and replaced it with a forgery.

Italian artist Salvatore Garau has challenged that criticism by creating a "sculpture" that doesn't exist at all - and selling it for just under £13,000...The buyer of the completely non-existent artwork must keep it in a private house within a five-foot square space that's free from any obstructions.

You can't understand art without a deep understanding of Poe's Law.

So, it is a non-digital NFT?

Dammit! Anyone want to buy the NFT for my forgery?... I mean artwork?

I found a photo of the sculpture and its now owner.

Wee Wee! I am, how you say - Jean Luc Dijon! I have studied this sculpture, and have created an invention that will shrink it down to a size where you can pack it in a matchbox and keep in your, how you say - desk! A space saving deal, at 3,000 doll-aires, huah-huah-huah!

Art has turned in a philosophical debate since photography was invented. It makes people try to bend the rules on what is. A painting of an orange is really just paint forming into something resembles said orange. Some of those rule bending is also to troll rich people to give them money. This is one of those times.

Italian auction house Art-Rite has declined to reveal the name of the immaterial sculpture's buyer

I'll let you in on a secret, I bought it. Here it is on my desk:

Oh, wow! Want to know something creepy?

I was just going through all of my photos and it's in all of them! It turns out it was with me all along.

Look, here it is on the step above my cat:

FTFA: 'He explains: "The successful outcome of the auction testifies to an irrefutable fact - the void is nothing but a space full of energy, and even if we empty it and nothing remains, according to Heisenberg's uncertainty principle that nothingness has a weight. It therefore has energy . . . that condenses and transforms itself into particles, in short, in us!'

The man is deranged.

And then, the police stole
the sculpture
because the police were us

Proof that a fool and his money are soon parted.  How do I know the buyer is a fool?  Well, a fool cannot tell the difference between deep esoteric wisdom and utter tosh.

/Utter Tosh is the title of my imaginary sculpture
//which is for sale on EBay for only 13,000 Euros. A steal compared to this schlock's hacky and generally poor imitation of my imaginary sculpture.

My imaginary friend stole some imaginary art.

"After all," asks Garau, "don't we give shape to a God we have never seen?"

I saw what he did there even before I read the article.

I AM, or rather YHVH, is an epithet of the Abrahamic God---the joke being that He is assumed imaginary.

Using an epithet of the Abrahamic God ironically is something of a tired trope in contemporary art. Denying His existence hasn't been especially edgy in western thought for a very long time.

If you must embezzle your shareholders, spend the money on something that isn't a cliché, for Fark's sake.

I enjoy art. I make myself, as do family. We range from painters, sculptors, iron welding sculpture, mainly music, and my D&D mini sculpture.

This guy can go fark himself while jacking off to the art only he can see (aka I couldn't manifest it). As far as thieves go, go steal something real.

sorry folks. you all quickly forgot a huge part of Art is the sensation you stir, and it's been that way for a very long time. the "hey mom look at me" shouted loudly from the rooftop has been a driving force in the Art world for a long time now. this artist is just following in those footsteps, getting himself world wide publicity and a pay check for nothing at all. IMHO this Art project shows more imagination and effort than a million photographs, which are the easiest and laziest form of reproduction a dolt can enjoy.

Prof. Frink: Let's play "how many dildoes did dyhchong forget to put away before taking those pictures".


Zero? I don't put them away.

Just the two of us in the house and the only people who come into the room I'd have a threesome with anyway so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. Not that I have, yet, unfortunately.
