This is commentary on an installation artwork that I made for SVA Open Studios 2019. Called ‘Private View’ it was an opportunity for audiences to enjoy the view from my studio in private for up to ten minutes. Participation was charged at £1. I have calculated that collectively, artists invested over £160K in this event, at a high personal investment risk, but to the fairly secure benefit of local property owners.
