If you are trying to learn photography, hanging a camera around your neck probably isn't the best way to do it. If you are trying to BS your way through a class, seems like this wouldn't be too hard to sell - "narcissism and technology explored through conceptual art" or something like that. I have a friend in a top 50 school who made a banana suit and did the peanut butter jelly time dance for his final. He got an A. And don't forget this "major landmark in 20th-century art." - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fountain_(Duchamp) . It's all about how you sell it.
