Why haven't you commodified your time spent online into an art career so you can make money selling/showing art in NYC galleries?

>Pic related

>Ryder Ripps comments on the question of how does one commodify the popularity of digital ephemera by rarifying one of the most popular internet memes, Pepe The Frog, rendering it in 15 ounces of 18 karat solid gold - effectively creating the rarest Pepe in the world. The Rare Pepe, or Why Post-Internet Art Is Stupid also has a his own website goldpepe.com. This ubiquitous meme started in 2005 and has been seen on everywhere from your mom's feed to Miley Cyrus'. The meme's irony is that one digital image can be "rarer" than another, which is also its punchline.

bump for future art careers

Taking a joke and turning it into some gallery shit and getting idiots to write about it is definitely amusing, but also proof that this person has no originality themselves.

Do you honestly think we all have the resources to steal other people's ideas and profit off them?

reminds me of the behelit or something

what would you have to sacrifice to gain ultimate neet power

it will probably just be melted down when they realize how worthless it is compared to the value of the gold

>>26047448
I wish I could be the one to melt it down. Fuck this garbage. The fact that it's ironic doesn't make it good.

i read some article on vice about a fatguy who trolls 4chan steals meme images and grotesquery for his murals and makes money from that
art communities are kind of a joke its just networking

This entire situation makes me really uncomfortable in a different sort of way.
>we post sadfrog
>frog and feelguy used for 80% of thread images
>post pepe threads become more common
>these morph into meta humor "rare pepe" threads
>new users don't understand
>take the meta in the wrong direction
>it becomes cancerous on our own board
>thanks to reddit and tumblr this leaks into the rest of the internet and real world
>nobody understands it
>but they run with it anyway
I wonder if any of them will ever realize how embarrassing they look taking an ironic joke seriously and making it part of their internet experience.
Feels fucking weird, man.

This has happened to every significant meme that's occurred. Don't contribute to memes, they all go down that route or fizzle out. That and they're unoriginal and lazy after the first post.

It happens every few months, but it's never been this bad.

First we had DJs making money of playing other peoples songs, then we had peoples playing videogames and just making silly faces on camera on youtube making millions, now memes will be a form of art and will make you rich. If aliens would visit earth they would be dissapointed at the media and modern art. I know I am.

A good idea in general, may mays are for autistic ledditors, but judging by 4chin's may may obsession there isn't a difference between the two websites.
