order of things

(self-explanatory instruction)

read the following summary to the images above:
the exhibition comprises of more than seven hundred instructions covered the walls and objects in the gallery creating a space of experience and reflection on the immediate socio-cultural environment that the artist and viewers were subjects to. 


instructions - written/drawn/typed on sheets of rice paper, created a  process of exchange - both cultural and transactional - between the gallery and its visitors over the duration of the exhibition.

to initiate such a process of exchange, visitors were asked for their consent to perform a simple instruction that is to produce a new instruction or buy one which was already displayed.


as a producer of instruction, a visitor was paid according to the minimum hourly wage in the washington dc area, while the purchase price of an instruction was set by adding to this rate a margin for the gallery and cost of the materials.
