The Value of Art is a group of interactive paintings that deal with the attention economy and value creation in the world of art. The artists transform paintings by equipping them with a thermal printer and sensors that can measure the exact time visitors spend in front of the painting. An initial value, including costs and expenses, is printed at the beginning of each exhibition. The value of the painting increases the more time visitors spend admiring it, laying bare the process of the creation of value with a work of art.
