oil paint on casted gold
dimensions variable
I casted pennies in gold and painted on them with oil paint to resemble the ordinary coins as a sculptural work. After spending some time with these three objects I spent them as three cents in New York City. They were mixed with other pennies to pay for little goods at three different occasions and locations. This work raises a question of the evaluative aspect on good and bad in art and society to see how the notion of value shifts and how an invisible value is being agreed upon certain objects.
