Oops, Cindy Sherman designed a pool float

Now photographer Cindy Sherman is getting in the weird pool float game.

The float’s featured selfie image was accidentally created when two pics merged in the artist’s phone: “I took this photo to send to someone who knitted the hat for me (Helene Winer of Metro Pictures gallery, actually). But, I also wanted to play around with some apps that I’d just started using and accidentally pressed a button that added some old setting onto this image. I thought it was a nice accident so I kept it.” – Cindy Sherman, on the creation of the “Oops” image

It's available for $250 at Chicago's Museum of Contemporary Art store. Sure, you could say that $250 is an outrageous amount to spend on a PVC inflatable or you could look at it as a cheap way to own her art.
