Art Commodities
2014 - Inkjet prints on tracing paper.

This project is a provocative business model for the art market, which is introduced through an economic and social analysis of the contemporary art world. It proposes a new model to support critical art by a protocol called the Smart Art Market, and by large series of unique pieces sold for very low prices. This economic model is enabled through selling Smart Digital Art Objects, which is a format invented by the artist to authenticate digital art via cryptography. Ultimately, the idea of digital collections, as well as economic and sales models, becomes the conceptual artwork itself, beyond its implementation and use. The artwork is presented with diagrams and texts that subtly use financial and economic language while making proposals for new modes of sustainable art markets.
