Hey guys, do you want to make a piece of art that could potentially be worth thousands of dollars? Well, now you can, with a dollar and about three minutes worth of your time. You can, in fact, create your own highly profitable work of art that will grace the floors of galleries in Switzerland, to be marveled at by rich-millionaire types that will throw a hundred grand at you in a second to take a piece of your "high concept" art.
Step 1: Materials
-A permanent marker
-Shipping stickers (Available for free at your local post office)
-A flat surface (Also free, available on any 2 or 3 dimensional object.)
-An idea you can put into words (Free as well, available in your brain.)
Step 2: Create your masterpiece
For this example, I have decided to make a homage to Lawrence Weiner's work, who's idea inspired me to create this instructable. Note how I do not use the parenthesis to bookend the phrase "Set down in the groove", I do not want any accusations of copying his idea word for word, because lord knows I couldn't afford the 160,000 dollars for the right to use it. Nonetheless, if you are in need for inspiration, allow me to tick off some ideas, free of charge.
