Iconoclast Editions is offering a neat, inexpensive open edition of a Tom Sachs“readymade” Sharpie. The text traditionally found on the permanent marker has been re-inked by the artist, for a matrix-style mindfreak of artist writing on art object with art object writing on art object. See how everyday items can be trippy in the right context? Obviously some people will take issue with this, but I’m a fan of the mark of an artist’s hand, and this is a pretty blatant reminder. Maybe next year I’ll go to SDCC armed with a pocket protector of generic permanent markers and the intent to get my favorite artists to sign MY markers with THEIR markers. Also, writers should start throwing their pens to audiences after book signings or readings the way drummers toss drumsticks at concerts. Now there’s an idea…So who wants my Uniball Signo .28 then?
