Musician and artist David Byrne has contributed a few pieces to a social media-related art exhibit at the Pace Gallery in New York, and his entries all consist of authentic-looking App Store listings .. for fake iPhone apps. Childster, for example, will run you $1.99, and "turns your phone into a babysitter," so you don't have to worry about the kids yourself. Invisible Me, on the other hand, will send automatic replies to any communication, leaving you free to be by yourself all the time.

Interesting. The gallery is opening up next month, and will feature other works taking a look at social media (and apparently other Internet periphery) through "an aesthetic and conceptual lens." If you're in New York, the gallery will be open until sometime in October.
