James Franco’s making art even when you can’t see that he’s making art.

The actor/writer/filmmaker/professional grad student has teamed up with New York City artists Brainard and Delia Carey, and together they’ve created the Museum of Non-Visible Art (MONA). Yes, that’s right, art that you can’t see.

The concept is described as “an extravaganza of imagination, a museum that reminds us that we live in two worlds: the physical world of sight and the non-visible world of thought. Composed entirely of ideas, the Non-Visible Museum redefines the concept of what is real.”

You can purchase this non-visible art via Kickstarter (though there is a clear warning that you won’t actually be receiving any art that you can see) starting for as little as $20. You’ll receive a title card and then, according to MONA, “the rest is up to you.”

You’ve got to hand it to Franco. It’s much easier to be obnoxiously prolific with your art when your art doesn’t require you to physically do anything.  (via Salon)
