CHEAP ART. An ongoing economic investigation, social practice, or desparate hustle, which investigates the concept of value by offering artwork for sale in various experimental ways: either at surprisingly cheap prices; or on a sliding scale; or through auctions or trades; or with prices that change and float up and down like hot air balloons. The prospective buyer is often placed in the position of having to make the decision about the value of an object that is usually determined by "the Market".
DRAGONSEX, colored pencil and marker, 2018. The price of this drawing is announced daily and allowed to float up and down according to supposed market forces, or weather patterns.
