‘Donation box’ aims to trigger the sensitive issue of money exchange around art scene. It would question the gap between donors’ expectations and executor’s allocation of the fund. As for its first premiere in the Glue Factory (Glasgow) in June 2013, the donated coins of about £300 to this work were automatically donated again to anonymous audience in a week.  From the other viewpoint, it can also be interpreted as a game between the artist and the gallery goers in Govan: If the donated coins are eventually remained, it will be audience’s donation to artist. Otherwise, it will be the artist who donates money to people in Govan.
