The dust dealer. pin, 2011.
small folded paper, gold dust, expectation, attention and loss
The idea behind the Project PIN Anonimum is that, as jewels, the pins appear as communication vehicles irrespective of their authors, thus questioning the importance of the object per se and keeping it far from an underlying authorship that shall only be revealed later on.
We keep the gold leftovers; is something we are taught to do.
And then, we learn where the value lies.
