Microwaved Game Console “Artwork” Worth $31,000?

I’ve seen some weird stuff in my day, but this sure does take the cake.  It’s interesting to see how “art” is interpreted by different people.  To someone like myself, a microwaved video game console like an Xbox 360 or a Nintendo Wii is not something I’d be to happy about or call “art,” but to another person, it’s expensive “artwork.”

Selling for $31,002 is a Microwaved Xbox 360 console.

As you can see, the console has been microwaved and given a slightly gruesome look with all the eyes added on.  I must say this is one weird piece of “artwork.”  In the Ebay auction, it says 50% of the proceeds will be donated to the “CAIR-CA, The Council on American-Islamic Relations, California”

If you’re not a fan of Xbox, you could always go with a Microwaved Nintendo Wii!  That’s right, it’s the same thing as the Xbox 360 except a Nintendo Wii and 1/7th the price.  At $5988 you can get the Wii.  Like the 360, this one will have its proceeds go towards “CAIR-CA,” but only 25%.


If you ask me, I think these both are pretty outrageous, but unique in their own ways.  In case for some reason any of you are wondering, these consoles are non-functional.  That’s right, they are just to look at, not play.  Sorry!

    There has to be a way to melt them into a mold more artistically than this, while maintaining a certain amount of the console’s original look. Like much modern art, this looks like some guy attacked something with a flame and yelled “GIVE ME MONEY!!!”

    Only have one comment: It’s amazing what kind of crap you can get people with too much money to buy, by just sticking the label “art” on it. Stupid.

    The first thing that comes to mind is Resident Evil. They look like they’ve been infected with the G-virus. Haha.

    I remember seeing an article about a mircowaved PS3 turned into art, it’s looked sweet.

    I wouldn’t buy these, even if they were cheaper, but they are cool, in a creepy fucked up kind of way.
