The "Gesture As Value", project is
an international project presenting exchange as social value
In ten countries -- South Korea, Switzerland, United States, Canada, England, the Netherlands, Germany, Romania, Italy and France -- I am collecting original gestures on small pieces of paper the size of an American Dollar (2 1/2" X 6").
The papers collected will become part of public installations and exhibitions in Bern (Switzerland) Toronto, Canada (Bank of Symbiosis) and New York, NY. The papers will be accessable to the public through ATM bank machine transactions. Overall views of all gestures received will be shown at the Galerie Francesca Pia, Bern (Switzerland) and Kentler International Drawing Space, Brooklyn (New York).
The "Gesture As Value", project is an international project presenting exchange as social value intending to minimize national borders and offer individuals, using the machine, a broad perspective on other realities. The only requirement is that the contributions be made onto the papers provided or onto papers precisely the same dimensions and of similiar weight (80-120 g)
IT CAN BE A DRAWING, QUOTE, PAINTING, COMPUTER ART, OBSERVATION, THOUGHT, IDEA, ETC.
HERE ARE THE FOUR CATEGORIES:
1. ART: This means you can paint, draw, print, sketch, xerox, do computer graphics, XEROX ART, or use any other visual format. Glued or attached images to the paper will NOT function in the machine.
2. THEORY AND TEXT: Essays, analysis, criticisms, poetry, music, fiction, and or non-fiction can be written.
3. QUOTES: Quotes from yourself, the famous,or the unknown
4. INSIGHTS AND SPECULATIONS: Thoughts, reflections, observations, dreams, perceptions, intuitions and new perspectives.
YOU MAY CONTRIBUTE AS MANY PAPERS AS YOU LIKE
Including your name and country are optional, (This could be of interest to the individual receiving your original)
