You remember a couple of weeks ago, when some art collector bought one of Banksy’s most famous works for $1.4 million, only to see it shred itself moments later.
The shredding stopped about 2/3 of the way down the painting, leaving only the balloon visible within the frame. Well, Banksy has released a video showing his construction of the frame, and the dry runs, showing what was actually supposed to happen.
By the way, it looks like his statement about “empty consumerism” that the stunt was supposed to convey backfired – the shredded painting is now purported to be even more valuable now!
