Am reminded today of a funny little Yves Klein project.

10 February 1962. M. Blancfort gives the artist 160 grams of pure gold in 16 ingots in exchange for a certificate for "zone" No.1, Series 4.

The paper is given to M. Blancfort, who burns the paper the afterwards, and Klein, who tosses the gold into the river.
