Coin trick

Undy, Claire [Artist] (2018) Coin trick. Swap Edition 3 : Artist as Machine. .


'Coin Trick' is a dismantled flip book, printed on the pink pages of the Financial Times, deconstructing the classic ‘disappearing coin’ illusion. Once the frames of the moving image are separated, the sleight of hand is revealed, and the trick no longer functions. As still images, the gestures become abstract and incomprehensible- much like the workings of the stock markets the pages describe. By taking a small section of the work each, the owners of the flip book collectively stop it functioning.
