MOVING THE MUSEUM

I had the idea of demonstrating the value of an object/ collection by using two materials that hold completely different values. I wanted to experiment with bronze and silver and this is perfect as silver holds almost 100x the value of bronze.

What I have created is two 500mm x 500mm frames with sculptures held within, much like the insect specimens, one frame has 49 bronze sculptures and the other contains a single silver sculpture as the value of the sliver would be double that of all 49 bronze works. The shape of the individual sculptures was governed by the patterns gained from analysing the location of the bronze sculptures within the museum.
