When I grow up, I want to be like Mr. Cerny

I would highly recommend checking out this piece on a brilliant new mosaic meant to,

"symbolize the glory of a unified Europe by reflecting something special about each country in the European Union."

So what really happened?

"In the case of "Entropa," Mr. Cerny presented the piece as the work of 27 artists, one from each country. But it was all a huge hoax. After being challenged by reporters this week, Mr. Cerny admitted that he and two of his friends constructed the whole thing themselves, making up the names of artists, giving some of them Web sites and writing pretentious, absurd statements to go with their supposed contributions."
