If you’re one of the millions who’ve wished you could come up with the next Pet Rock, eat your heart out atOrigami Boulder. The anonymous “artist’s” site sells wadded up paper he calls “origami boulders.”
Online only, you can buy an origami boulder for $10, one with a haiku inside for $15 or an Origami Boulder Performance Art Option (no product) for $3. There is no product because after the artist wads up the boulder, he throws it in the garbage. Your $3 is for his performance. There is no store, no studio, no photo of the artist. In fact, no name for the artist. He’s just “the artist.” I bet you’ll hear a lot about him.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: But how can I read the haiku if the paper is in a boulder shape?A: You can’t, but it there. What is the sound of one hand clapping, dumb dumb?
Q: But can’t I unfold the page to read the haiku?
A: You unfold wadded paper, you ruin artwork! Don’t be stupid. Haiku is there. I even write it in English. You not read it though.
I give example:
Buy wadded paper
from very famous artist
and then you like it
I write a different new one for every haiku order, ok? You will like it very much but you don’t read it because it ruins artwork.
