Commodities

Commodities is a collaborative project between spirited bidders and myself. Art pieces are created based on specific marketable goods and cater to niche audiences of collectors and enthusiasts. The works are then exhibited on the auction website, eBay, under search terms that coincide with the vernacular from which each piece derives. Potential buyers may experience the thrill of shopping and the excitement of competition by vying against one another to win the art piece. The culminating action occurs at the close of each auction once rival bidders complete each piece by determining its value.

The project blog provides ongoing documentation––including; eBay item descriptions, sales amounts, comments, and questions––relating to the project.
