I'd be happy to buy it off them for £1.
The KLF setting fire to a million quid springs to mind ..Are or which other people or groups of people are taking/working the idea of a social media event being a piece of art? I'm not arguing just asking because I don't know. What other pieces are there like this? I'd like to see them and some sign posts would be really helpful. Is social/media art a movement right now like the Impressionists or Pre-Raphaelites? Obviously artists use other people - Warhol, Michaelangelo, Hirst. But is this piece of Banksy's a part of a movement or just that person/group's most famous piece?
There has to be a book or website all about this kind of art...any suggestions?

And quite a lot of Mud!Weston used to have a great deal going on - in the 60s and 70s it had two piers, the lido, tons of pubs, restaurants, hotels, arcades, a model village, the Winter Gardens, a little zoo, waxworks (hilariously terrible)... but since the late eighties it's concentrated on becoming a town that doesn't have to depend on tourism - people can get a fortnight in Alicante or wherever for the same price with guaranteed good weather and a tide that doesn't retreat for a mile over the mudflats. As a town it knows that what's left looks a bit seedy - apart from the pier, rebuilt after the fire, which does a good trade - so what it did was expand massively inland, becoming second to Bristol in population a while ago, overtaking Bath, and serves as a dormitory for the former. It does still have a loyal fanbase for holidays though, and the surrounding countryside is lovely. I'm very fond of it, especially in the winter - it has that splendid bleakness.
