Paintings of numbers for sale



Sala, an artist from ZĂĽrich, Switzerland, is selling 1000 paintings of the first 1000 numbers. The selling price of each painting is calculated like this:

Value = 1000 – number.
Initial discount: 90%.
Current discount: 80%.
The discount will decrease by an absolute 10% for every 100 paintings sold.
Min. price: $40.

Check out pictures from the kickoff event at V-Gallery in Basel, Switzerland on February 12, 2006.

So far, Sala has sold 171 paintings. A pretty cool idea. Why didn’t I think of it? 🙂

Eurobad ’74 – Europe’s Worst Interiors


Fads come and thankfully, fads go. Check out some of the horrible interiors that were showcased at Eurobad ’74. Although some trends do return, thankfully this “Eurochic” hasn’t come back in style… yet.

So if you think your place doesn’t quite match, get some assurance that it could be worse. Much worse.
