The Final Project

Work for the final project has been underway for a few weeks. I've begun to look at the value of art and what gives it it's value. In response to this the work I make will be made from objects or items of monetary value, money being a prime example. This will give my work an instant value and price for the market
(that's the idea anyway).

How work is valued in the art market doesn't always depend on the cost of inputs such as time and materials. Sometimes who has bought and owns your work can instantly increase the value. This is like no other market as price isn't dependant on supply and demand like the usual market forces. It's quite a broad topic to explore but there's particular areas I want to look at which will hopefully be reflected in my work and final realisation.
