Description:


Errata is composed of Pages, the second version of Catalogues, File Cards, Sheets and Graphics.
Errata is a system that incites formal and conceptual inquiry regarding the impact that the market produces on our perception and image of art. But it also examines whether this status can arrive at a representational language as "exciting" as the price of an artwork.

These pieces both replicate and also expand the devices of representation from Sotheby's and Christie's galleries. They propose – using a procedure inspired by their own market indicators- a list of errata in the source information (the catalogues and websites of these two galleries).

By means a system of calculations and correspondences between dollars and centimeters, Errata proposes to visualize the price of sale on the pictures of artwork sold.

The project creates a second version of the Catalogue, Pages and new Graphics. The selling price of each artwork produces the visual event on the image of the piece sold.
