"gift economy" = "I take what I want, and fuck you"
Art project idea:
Something interesting, monolithic, and just the right size to pick up and steal. Installed just off the Esplanade, in a dark place. Connected to a retracting cable spool that's anchored underground. IR video of the would-be thieves continually looping on a big monitor in the owner's camp on the Esplanade.

Ordinarily I'd be inclined to intervene but left them a six pack instead.
