@krinkle its really funny, but i think the tiny bit of context that "MSCHF" isnt an artist but a marketing agency is somewhat important to remind people of
1. bought an Andy Warhol drawing for $20,000.
2. made 999 high-quality forgeries.
3. shuffled them.
4. sold each of the 1000 drawings for $250.
You might get the original $20,000 Warhol, but you’ll never know. This hurts my brain and I'm loving it!
It's a reasonable price for common art. No lottery. Nobody is ripped off. The artist profits hugely, yet gives away a unique item far below market value, but its receiver won't know.
It challenges our value system in very Warhol-way.
