How do you make modern art? Ethan Klein went to the Museum of Modern Art in New York City to find out. He examined how seemingly ordinary objects are actually thoughtful expressions of meaning for which you should pay the artists large amounts of money.
Then Klein, though not a trained artist himself, set about the task of creating his own modern art. He placed his red beanie cap in a frame and put it on eBay for sale. He is willing to part with it in exchange for $1,000,000.
Klein's framed knit cap is a work of genius. No, really, it is! Here's how you can tell: the bidding on eBay stands at $2,000,100.
Okay, so maybe the framed beanie is not itself brilliant. But if Klein can actually sell it for that amount, then he is a genius.
