In January 2008, Artprice launched a powerful measuring tool—the Art Market Confidence Index—capable of appreciating art market trends in real-time.
The Art Market Confidence Index (AMCI) is a value generated by Artprice according to a large number of art market indicators. Its value fluctuates over time between -40 and +40.
When the art market is confident, the AMCI is positive; when the market is morose, the AMCI is negative.
Mona LHO is an Internet-connected art piece that restores and displays this Art Market Confidence Index in real-time.
Basically, this object is a connected ready-made.
Mona LHO is a ready-made of modern times through its relationship to the art market and its connection to the Internet.
