Brian Thompson

Artist John Freyer is selling his possessions on eBay to raise money for the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance. 

I got married wearing this old thing.. me... an ironic hipster? Or just a poor gradute student who could only afford $1 drafts? #FiftyFifty2016.

Break Up Watch. #FiftyFifty2016.

You can check out his current eBay auctions here. Winner bidders have the option of choosing a signed 8X10 print of the item instead of the item itself.

The project is a continuation of a previous work – in 2000, John sold the entire contents of his apartment on eBay. (and the resulting book) "explored our relationship to the objects around us, their role in the concept of identity, as well as the emerging commercial systems of the Internet." 

I was so inspired by the project, that I asked John's permission to repeat the experiment. was the first crazy thing I did on the internet. 

Good on ya John.

"I bought this from Brian Thompson when he sold his life on Ebay. He was the 3rd person to do it after me. I think he said he stole it from the Indiana University Dining Hall. #FiftyFifty2016"
