GOOD AS GOLD

A public intervention by Owen Parry, 2008

Drawing influence from minimalist tendencies and street activism, Good As Gold attempts to disrupt public space and question the value of small gestures by offering minute yet spectacular suprises through everyday interaction.

The intervention includes an audio document of a boy who attempts to track Owen down by interviewing the locals and following his glittery traces. "Have you seen the guy with glitter on his hands?"
