The Value of Art are interactive paintings dealing with the economy of attention and value creation in the art world.
Once "The Value of Art" interactive painting is shown, the work will start counting the number of visitors and the amount of time they spend looking at the painting. Through our integrated sensors the painting will constantly update its value, making the whole process of value creation for this artwork totally transparent. The more people look at the work, the more valuable it will become.
The Value of Art is a critical reflection on the economy of attention, the relationship between artist, artwork and audience, and the question of monetary and ideological value of the artists and audiences time and dedication.
