Genius - quite literally money for nothing. I wish I had thought of it. Seems obvious really, Cage had already done it with music (and successfully sued Lou Reed for copyright infringement).

The next step is a book full of blank pages and a theatre piece with no performers. And one with performers who stay in their dressing rooms. Please note, I have full copyright on these high art concepts, and will sue anyone who tries to steal my intellectual property.

There has been an artist (sadly cannot remember the name), who exhibited empty frames, so it is not that original.
 Reminiscent of my best photography, that is still all in my head, and probably never will see the light of day.

Priceless Much Ado About Nothing.

Bummer, I never thought about selling the images over the bedroom ceilings, let alone opening my own dream gallery. I even have a stuffed Mosquito attached to one 'work of Art' exhibit .

Well by stuffed I mean, Flattened  :knuppel2: because it bit me last night.

 :-\ :2funny: :'(  :o

 :idea: Perhaps I will catch the next blighter and sell it to the highest bidder :legit:

Mrs H has informed me that she has already stolen the original works and replaced them with copies. So more fool the buyers - they're not even getting the real art - fools!

There`s no "like" button on here  ;). LIKE :)

Trouble is you steal one you like and it doesn`t look the same on your own wall  :doh:

To give it your own 'stamp,' so it fits in with your furniture? Or would you have to imagine your furniture too, if you go that way? And your house?
It would solve homelessness in one huge, imaginative brainwave.

I know of someone who entered a black (completely black) photo along the theme of 'a worm's eye view'.
I guess worms are blind, but I don't think she got many points... 8)
