Artist Justin Gignac has a flair for juxtaposing the ordinary and the refined. Four years ago, he started selling small bundles of garbage from New York City as art. Two years, he tried to buy items for paintings of those items (e.g. a painting of a slice of pizza for the price of a slice of pizza).
One of his recent creations is a security tag, like those in clothing stores that prevent shoplifters from making off with merchandise. Except that this one is plated in 18-karat gold and features white diamonds. Each one costs $700.
