Take me home

Stickers with short texts are discreetly put on various products in supermarkets, their buyers are then unconsciously becoming owners of an ‘art artefact’. After the package is thrown away, the art piece is destroyed, which corresponds to the short lifetime of contemporary art, when nowadays is almost impossible to create supertemporal artwork, because of fast changing social environment. The contemporary art works are continuously replaced by newer, more actual.

The second variation of this project was using stickers with only two words: ‘original’ or ‘copy’ as a metaphor on slowly disappearing border between original piece and its unrecognisable copy. One piece of each random product was labelled as original the rest of the identical products were marked as copies.
