Exhaust Pipe Sculpture

Three students from the north-east Essex technical college at Colchester welded together bits of exhaust pipe and other pieces of metal. Then, posing as delivery men, they took their creation to the Colchester Art Society's show of modern art, where it was accepted without question and placed on display in the center of the exhibition. One of the hoaxers, John Everett, said, "We were staggered when they accepted it so easily." But the secretary of the Art Society took the deception with good humor, saying, "If this exhibit is going to attract crowds I am all in favor of leaving it where it is." [The Age]
