California Artist 'Shopdrops' Her Art at IKEA
How Bay Area-based artist Michele Pred spent her Black Friday, via her website: "On Black Friday I shopdropped 10 hand signed prints of my artwork at IKEA in Emeryville, CA. Shopdropping is the opposite of shoplifting where merchandise is covertly placed in a store for display and sale. The prints are available for sale at IKEA for $8."
By Saturday, they were all sold.
The art is an image of a mobile phone interactive 2D Barcode--called Mobile Tagging--in IKEA's color scheme. When scanned, the message reads "You Are What You Buy."
Pred this week is at Miami Basel causing more fun trouble.
