How do you decide the value of a thing?
Puzzling over this as so many artists do, combined with actual life, led me to devise a peculiar pecuniary project.
I’m going to make my own money.
The project is still in development, but it involves creating my own artist’s currency, exchangeable at a rate tied to the British pound. The idea is to offer exchanges in future should the buyer wish to do so, whether at a fixed rate of exchange or for other artwork.
Artists’ currencies aren’t new. Follow me on Pinterest as I gather together examples of community currencies, artists making their own currencies and artists working with money.
Oh, and please get in touch with suggestions!
