I decided to have an impromptu exhibition – it is so impromptu the people who are coming to visit don’t even know it is an exhibition.
As an artist (well sort of) it is easier to encourage people to look, touch even buy your works of art in a gallery. High Street shopping and gallery purchases are a sensual experience, so how does this work on the Internet?
We are all constantly searching for the next must have object – we read reviews, visit galleries, go shopping and are sometimes captured by cynical marketing. When friends, neighbors and family show off their latest lifestyle purchase, frantic impulse buying (online) begins – we want the lifestyle but we want it cheaper.
