Street performance and postcard mail art.
This one day street performance that later became a postcard art was inspired by the constant data logging effort for commercial purposes (Google, Amazon, Netflix, Target to name a few.) The name comes from Cash4Gold, the now bankrupt company known for their very questionable business practice. In this piece I pretend to have a business that would appraise your secret and then return cash to the seller. The absurd scenario presents a society where your dirty secret and gossip become a valuable and yet quantifiable asset and a shoddy business that constantly trying to undervalue your asset.
