Jars of Air (Really!)

Iowa Air in a Jar - Collecting Iowa Air in jars and shipping it around the world. Reaching all 99 counties and documenting the journey.

This man wants to sell you a jar of air.

99 jars of air one from each of Iowa’s counties. I know he’s got some kind of artistic statement he’s supposedly making, but that doesn’t change the fact that he is trying to sell jars of air!

A hundred and fifty dollars!! Don’t worry though, he gives you a discount if you supply your own jar :

He was also going to make an “Ultimate” jar of air by opening the jar in each county. Personally, I don’t think he’s thought that through. Doesn’t it just become the jar for whatever county he visits last? It’s not like these jars didn’t all have air in them before he opened them. How is opening it in 99 different places any different than opening it once at the last place?

Maybe it’s a mistake to try applying rational thought to this project.


Haven’t we seen this before?
