Jonís post really made me think. What audience do we really want to reach out to? The question when it come to selling is maybe not so much "how do I make an work that is suitable for the marked?Ē , but rather: who do I want to sell to, and what kind of experience do I want the audience/collector to have?
I think the context of a piece is very relevant. I ones did an experiment with a group of students were I asked them to imagine their work in different (art historical) contexts, and it was very interesting to see how the meaning, and even the quality of the work shifted accordingly.
