Overview
a quid !
  I am no journalist or pundit but didn’t Eccentric see this current financial crisis coming? ‘Let’s re-value a commission; let’s get value for our art money… Low-money low art-risk.’ Then they market it as Credit Crunch Art, fuck these guys are clever, I’m imaging Harry as Gordon Gekko in Wall Street ‘Greed captures the essence of the evolutionary spirit…’

So my piece ‘A Quid’ is working to government set value of time and effort based on minimum wage. I spent the initial pound on 15 meters of kitchen foil, then invested 10 minutes of my time. My investment of 10 minutes I hope to recover in the re-evaluation process at Eccentric, book signings, daytime television appearances... I plan to recover 10 times my original investment.
