What makes art valuable? - BBC Documentary HD - YouTube
(1) auction price determined who owned it previously, who collected them [Out of Love], who will bid on it - back then an obscure painting, art, or whatever can raise hairs within a few years if it were (the piece) in the right hands of a lover, from the start. in the hands of a well known and respected collector or gallery or individual person. [mentality of the art director/collector] (2) it is perceived value, not material value. a paintings value can change magically by a revealing of it's true attribution - painter. or who collected - who collects those works of art. or even art advisors yes that is a job title - a person who keeps the name of the bidder anonymous. (3) art collection can be addictive, and it is the long-haul game. talking about 2-3-4-5 decades. (4) people who can afford these bids - want to surround themselves with equals among them. so to speak. masters of their craft. & eventually the acquisition of a status symbol or long-term investment for the family trust.

Goldfrapp's Music Video Explores Gender Identity And Gives You Chills
It’s very much about memory, identity and gender. I’ve always been fascinated by dual creatures, personas, people, personalities, and transformation. I think it’s a theme that’s pretty much always in fairy tales and horror, which I love. What struck me about Annabel is that the parents are in total denial of what their child is: this child has to choose in the end, and that’s what society is making them do. Why can’t you be both? I feel really strongly about that whole concept in so many things in life. All the characters in these songs are trying to figure out who they are, where they’re going, and why they are who they are. /watch?v=TxCn8UyrAmk
