Art sells buildings:
The Telegraph, on using art & design to sell upmarket show-homes. The Independent, on property developers as art patrons. Both stories are mainly about residential property. It’d be interesting to see art photography included in the rush for art-for-the-affluent, and not just in the residential developments that are increasingly springing up in the deepening boom. For instance; couldn’t hotel & corporate lobbies be made much less impersonal by commissioning a photographer to create local images that give a “sense of place”? They wouldn’t necessarily have to be traditional framed prints, they could be digital projections that subtly changed according to the time of day or night.
