“Like a Leica”

The artist Tom Sachs (via collete.fr) has the following item for sale on his website:

Here is the description:

“Like a Leica

Limited edition of 12.

Tom Sachs is a sculptor from NYC. He’s known for his elaborate recreations of various modern icons such as Hello Kitty, NASA, Chanel, Hermès, etc… This is an original signed and numbered piece handmade at the artist’s studio in New York City. This 12.1 megapixel Canon PowerShot SD780 IS Digital ELPH pocket-camera has been rebranded into a Leica.

Engravings, paint and customized stickers ensure the experience is better than genuine.”

The price? €2,100 / $2,500. Memory card not included. I am not sure what to say… Let’s put it this way – I like the NASAblad and the Incinolet much better.  Actually, I am sure of one thing – all 12 pieces will be sold.
