Because of this thread;
www.abovetopsecret.com...

I decided to enter the fray of the art world.

This is a size 11-13 black wool sock and 2 pieces of duct tape.

It represents my angst. And my foot covering when I wear shoes.

Bidding starts at 100,000.00 dollars.

Good luck to the winner!

Im wondering if youre against using gorilla tape? Do you have a problem with using a tape of color?

Why does your lighter tape have the upper position over the black sock? Holding down the black sock...is that what you look to symbolize here?

Obviously it represents the Trump administrations position on marginal tax rates.

It is clean, but has a hole in the heel (not shown).

Since I am your "sock" it might be appropriate.

The artist is juxtaposing the racial tension with with art. In the Trump era, the the artist cleverly uses the silver duct tape to represent the jailing and oppression of people of color by using a black sock. In addition, the sock represents the broader society walking over the less fortunate. All this is then clearly back dropped by the cheap plywood which symbolizes the economic and wealth inequality of all people.

Some of you just don't understand modern art. The artists intentions are clear. This piece is clearly should be in the Guggenheim. He deserves to be a Nobel Laureate in art.

I did appreciate the irony of my sock selling itself. It's all very meta and sooper artsy. Raise the price.

Juxtaposition of the OSB, duct tape and synthetic cotton is mind blowing.

I’d bid but the sock is too big so doesn’t represent the struggle of man enough.

Great idea. Too bad it is lost on ATS. Can't you find some place more reputable to post this?
