Confusion parading as art

My wife’s annoyingly bohemian niece gave us this piece of abstract "art" after her graduation. She was in art school for almost 6 years and, yes folks, this was part of her senior thesis.

If you're interested in completely useless hanging wire objects that merely consume space and inspire nothing more than smirks from visitors, this piece is for you. Or, if you want to send someone a not-so-subtle message letting them know you hate them, this piece would make the perfect gift.

Have you ever had one of those moments where you just can't stop laughing for 15 or 20 minutes? I just had one when I read that Craigslist post about the artwork. I have no idea why, but that killed me. I guess it was just how frank the guy was about hating the artwork.
