The artist’s fee received from an exhibition was employed to determine the size of a neon work that says “production.” The language of the neon piece is determined by the context of the exhibition, in the illustrated case above, Turkish for Turkey. The color of the neon is set by the color of the bank note of the amount of the fee (100TL). As the adaptor for the neon itself costs 120 TL, while the size is determined by the amount of the fee, re-invested to make a work, the total cost and price of the work is 220 TL. The work is an endless edition, produced upon demand and will change in size over the course of time, always at the set price of 220 TL.
