Status of the Artist 2016

This work is a gallery installation of a point of sale printer which prints the UN Recommendation on the Status of the Artist (see installation example in the film).  This work is a reflection on this text. The formatting draws on the idiosyncratic nature of the UN language and highlights interesting features such as the definition of the Artist.  The use of non-archival thermal receipt-paper as a medium reflects both limitations of the UN declaration and the pressures of commercialization in art.
