In Lot 36: Fiction on Auction, the site of the auction was used to stage a fiction where the right to appear as a character in the novel Headless by K.D. was offered to the highest bidder. The name of the successful bidder as registered for the auction formed the name or identity of a character subsequently appearing in the novel.
