"AN OBJECT CANNOT COMPETE WITH AN EXPERIENCE", but
I stumbled across walking artist Hamish Fulton (his works) whilst in Paris. He takes photos while he walks. He claims the walk is the artwork but the photographs are the only thing he can sell. Love this:
I like this because of the truth of it, experiences reign supreme. But I’d also like to add a perspective in light of the frenzied production of transmedia experiences that are provided to consumers/users/people for free, because their is no business model yet. There is an increased awareness of the value of tangible goods (books, comics etc) and how people are willing to pay for tangible goods that are provided as part of the experience. An object cannot compete with an experience, but it sure can fund it.
