now this is art

The Tantamounter.

It’s a bunch of Vienna artists in a giant plywood box. You put an object, any object, into the box. A few minutes to an hour later, you get two objects back: your original and a piece of artwork that is inspired by your object. And it’s all for free!

People have put photos, tape recorders, and even small children into the plywood box.

The artwork itself reminds me alot of the sculpture doodles that my brother and I did while in college.

This event took place at Leo Koenig Gallery, 545 West 23rd Street, New York, New York.
