    Interactive Painting

Artist Statement:


    The Value of Art (Cat) is from a series of interactive paintings dealing with value creation in the art world and the attention economy. Responding to the idea that attention is the new currency in our media based society, the artists buy paintings at auction houses and equip them with sensors that measure the time that viewers spend in front of the work. The value of the artwork is constantly updated in 1 Euro increments, making the process of value creation transparent.
