Art Value art project consists of various manifestations, the author Das Vegas and ART VALUE studio serves to bring numerical expressions for your engagement and excitement, below you find a few of them described:
Art Value: Auction
The project “Art Value: Auction” is part of the larger “Art Value” project and is a series of art auctions where the viewer is encouraged to rethink the notion of the “artwork as a commodity”. The project consists of creating a real art auction situation in which the buyer of the artwork becomes a co-author of the work.
In the performance the content is produced by the audience, the price paid for the finalized artwork is imprinted on a paper and sold to the winner of an auction. From the start, there is no artwork produced, so the bidding process happens preemptively. After the completion of the all procedures: bidding, winning, selling, producing an artwork, the Certificate is provided to ensure the authenticity of the artwork.
The price is the content of the artwork. The buyer acquires the numerical artwork in which the price is manifested.
After On Kawara
The ART VALUE project started with a series of acrylic paintings of “After On Kawara”. Paintings represent their financial value written in the manner of the Today series of Japanese conceptual artist On Kawara. The face value reports the price of the artwork, it follows the concept “the price of an artwork is the artwork”. Various values are incised like an arbitrary value, personal data, big data and other numerical representations and evaluations transformed into a monetary value.
A project bridging the digital and physical worlds, incorporating data layer and standing for the post-digital processes in our contemporary world. It is an interactive “Data Economy” installation where participants interact via sensors and make a substantial change on the screens. The turn from the numerical aesthetics to monetary aesthetics through a change in value is emphasized in this work as a contribution to the post-conceptual domain.
Art Value Pavilion
The Art Value pavilion is an exhibition space with several artworks and installations. The major experience unrolls via a production bar stand, performance stage and with multiple screens. The tangible artworks are produced in the pavilion’s workshop. The digital interactions unfold in the immersive environment for participants engaged in creation and acquisition of Numbers.
The exhibition “Ebay Restitutio” on eBay.com and the sales of artworks from a series “Restitutio Ad Integrum”. Through acquiring the works of this series you support the artist in a direct way! It is an explicit reimbursement of the artist’s expenses. The art is personal artist’s purchasing receipts put on sale.
SUPER COMMA project
The SUPER COMMA project takes the shape of a sticker and list of instructions. Given away as artwork the leaflet becomes a means for grassroots activity: the hacking of vehicle license plate numbers with an aim of re-evaluating the automobile. The car plate gets awarded by a foreign sign – a punctuation mark – comma.
