RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:

Not impressed by some of the art, teenager TJ Khayatan had a hypothesis. People will like anything if it's in an art gallery. So he set the glasses on the wooden floor, walked away and within seconds, people surrounded the new exhibit, taking photos, pondering from a distance. TJ tried other items, but none of them caused quite such a spectacle. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
