Give &Take is an interactive installation rediscovering the original trade practice of the market place in ancient times, before the invention of monetary currency. People freely barter goods from the shelves instead of buying and selling, then record their exchanges on the receipt. It is an act of bluring the line between the valuable and significant artwork and the common everyday object.
