Do two wrong arts make a right? At least one eBay seller seems to think so.
Last year, a sculpture by Jeff Koons—who is either a pioneering genius or a monstrous, self-merchandising fraud—became the most expensive work by a living artist: Balloon Dog (Orange), part of the series he’s best known for, fetched $58.4 million at a Christie’s auction.
Apparently looking to burst the art world’s bubble, Michael Green has produced an animated GIF of a stainless steel Koons balloon dog deflating—and slapped a $5,800 price tag on it. The image “will be shipped to the buyer within 24 hours through a USB stick, along with a COA (certificate of authenticity),” at no extra charge, which is nice.
