Selling Bad Data

The reception for my solo show “Bad Data”, featuring the Bad Data series is this Friday (July 24, 2015) at A Simple Collective.

Date: July 24th, 2015
Time: 7-9pm
Where: ASC Projects, 2830 20th Street (btw Bryant and York), Suite 105, San Francisco

The question I had, when pricing these works was how do you sell Bad Data? The material costs were relatively low. The labor time was high. And the data sets were (mostly) public.

We came up with this price list, subject to change.
