The case of the little brown dress

Art project takes on a life of its own. Woman makes dress, wears dress for a year, blogs about it, takes the dress off and it disappears--on the eve of a "Today" show interview.
Then the e-mails started arriving.

Hailing from littlebrowndress@gmail.com, the first e-mail featured a rather gruesome picture of the dress floating in a body of water. It read, "I felt like I was drowning and I need some time to sort things out by myself."

The second one featured the garment in the hands of a Goodwill sorter, with the note, "I don't care WHO I end up with." The third e-mail shows the dress near the Space Needle: "I still need some space."

Now that's performance art.
