Something and Nothing
“Different. I’ll give them different! How dare those critics say my work is stuck in a rut,” said the artist. “They deserve to get nothing from me.”
And nothing is exactly what they got. He shaped and moulded a statue out of it.
For the graffiti artists, he supplied invisible ink to deface it. For those vandals who like to dress statues in sllly clothes, he suggested asking the Emperor for his new ones. For photographers, he taped a square on the ground so they knew where it was.
For collectors, he auctioned nothing and charged a fortune for it.
