Let it Be What It Is. It Is What It Is.

Original Presentation of Album
BID AT DEN ON 27 FEBUARY 2015
The submission of an original album as a 'Duchampian readymade' artwork raises questions about the necessity of design, and its failure to add more value to an object at times. The formal presentation of this authentic object perhaps creates far more value than if it is represented and expressed through other means.
