Fooled again!


A 17-year-old prankster fooled some visitors of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art into thinking that a pair of glasses set on the floor was a part of the collection. They were simple black-rimmed glasses place on the floor. TJ Khayatan decided to perform this experiment because he wasn’t impressed with some of the displayed artwork and decided to take matters into his own hands. Wanting to test if people will stare at and try to interpret practically anything placed in front of them, he set a pair of glasses down and walked away. People soon began surrounding the glasses maintaining a safe distance from the “artwork” and began taking pictures. Khayatan adds that “some may interpret it as a joke, some might find great spiritual meaning in it. At the end of the day, I see it as a pleasure for open-minded people and imaginative minds.” And I can’t seem to find myself to disagree with this opinion.
