The Telfer Gallery, Ebay Launch Event, 2014

For the culmination of my year long research project with The Telfer Gallery I put up for sale 52 items related to my practice on ebay. These were the notes, ideas, sketches, recordings, websites and dead ends that had occurred while I was asking the question “What does nothing do?”.

This question had led to the project moving from its beginning of me buying magic spells off ebay to me putting the appropriated and gathered material up for sale on it, creating a temporary online archive of the year’s work. Ebay was used as a way to archive and distribute these things, allowing them to be circulated and exchanged and creating an “ecology of stuff” through an existing online network.

Every 15 minutes from 18:00 until 20:00 on Friday 12th December 2014 new items went online. These were available to bid on until Friday 19th December 2014.
