Slice of Life: A Pair of Glasses Left on the Museum Floor Mistaken for Art


A number of visitors to the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art were tricked into thinking that a pair of glasses was an art exhibit, when it was just left there by some pranksters.

The prank was inspired by some of the artwork at the gallery, which appeared to differ little from everyday objects. TJ Khayatan told BuzzFeed:

Believing that people there would take anything as art, Khayatan placed a pair of glasses on the floor and walked away. Sure enough, soon people started treating it as a work of art, keeping a distance from it, and some even took pictures.

This isn’t the first time Khayatan has successfully pulled off this prank, having previously executed the same stunt with a baseball cap and pin.
