We can only hope that the art world has as much trouble understanding us we have trying to fathom its hows and whys. Brooklyn-based, Polish-born artist Olek just closed her installation, "Knitting is for Pus****" in which she swaddled a host of everyday objects in vividly colored crocheted garb. Everything from bicycles to televisions and living, breathing people got the yarn treatment, including a plaster remake of a 1959 Morris Minor. Near as we can tell, the vehicle isn't in any sort of operational state, so don't start thinking you can strip the threads and have yourself a decent project vehicle.
As of writing, the current bid is at $1,525 with the reserve not met and a little over nine hours left on the auction. If you're thinking this is your next must-have piece of modern art, head to the interwebs and get your bid going. If nothing else, it'd be a great way to get into a Morris Minor-shaped blanket. Hit the jump for a look at the installation's opening.
