  So I posted the following request to  fiverr.com  the other day: 
   
 If you’re not familiar with it, fiverr is a website where you pay people $5 to do any number of tasks, from getting you more Twitter followers to weird-ass videograms to resume help.  It’s not exactly the first place you’d expect to find conceptual art.   Which is precisely one of the reasons I find it so appealing.  
 I got 14 responses in a couple days, but ultimately I went with the user who seemed the most legitimately interested/willing, who goes by the handle   saturnia .  
 As you can see from the receipt, she bought exactly $5 worth pudding. Which is kind of amazing and reminded me of  this scene  from Punch-Drunk Love:       "You can go to places in the world with pudding. That is funny."  
 So yeah. 
  tl;dr : I paid five dollars to see how a stranger would spend five dollars. And it was oddly rewarding. 
 …More to come…
