Expensive, INVISIBLE Art!

Expensive, INVISIBLE Art!

A Danish museum recently paid artist Jens Haaning $84,000 to create two custom pieces. He presented them…with two empty frames. He called the piece “Take the Money and Run.” Haaning insists that the empty frames are a work of art. He says, “It’s not theft. It is a breach of contract, and breach of contract is part of the work.” The museum wants their very visible money back. (The Washington Post)

And finally,

NASA is working to launch a mission to the moon. During previous moon missions, NASA used an “Astrovan” to shuttle the astronauts nine miles from their crew quarters to the launchpad. The Astrovan is gone. So, NASA is looking for a different vehicle to get the job done. Oscar Mayer suggested … their Wienermobile. Of course. While it would be the coolest thing we’ve ever seen in our lives, it doesn’t look like NASA will be taking Oscar Mayer up on the offer.  They should use it, and have the rocket roast  the weinermobile on take-off. No one ever listens to my amazing ideas. (CNET)
