Edition of three and one artist’s proof
Place Holder sees the artist himself, repeatedly flipping a coin until he drops it and drops out of the frame (about every 14 minutes) at which point the sound of the coin hitting the ground takes center stage circulating around the space until it comes to a halt. The action, as if to question chance, or hope of a different outcome, also touches on questions of artificial intelligence and perhaps even a cursory nod to the magic trick.
