Art is where you find it 10

This site allows prospective buyers of apartments at 650 Sixth Ave at 20th in New York to check out how art will look on the whiter than white walls. The developers have joined with an art gallery to let prospective buyers “curate” their own rooms, and presumably purchase the art to have it ready when they move, thus aligning this virtual world with reality. Possibly worth 10 to 15 seconds of your time, but be warned, the art comes under rubrics like “Branded consciousness”, Found objects and forgotten stories” and “Abstract expressions.” To get “curating”, click on the Chinese food containers when you reach the home page.
