Be Andr: Structure
The piece Structure explores the links between exchange and value. It is an interactive installation that continues to be created and grow as the audience interacts with it by exchanging something of their own for a piece of the art work - a poster depicting the value of one pound in different currencies on the day the idea of the piece occurred to the artist. The objects the visitors decide to exchange for a piece of art should be placed on the black area on the floor as an integrated part of the installation.
When the black area on the floor is full of objects they will be removed and placed into black plastic bags next to the exchange area. The plastic bags will be part of the installation, and will be exhibited as part of the installation when the piece is on display.
This installation will continue to grow as more and more people interact with it. When all the posters are exchanged new ones must be printed.
In this way the installation continues to grow each time it is exhibited. The number of black plastic bags will show how well it is received and in that way also be a measure of its value.
