chads from a hole-punched twenty pound note
Note surface area = 14.9 x 7.9cm = 117.71cm²
Chad surface area = pi x r² = pi x 0.3cm² = 0.2827cm²
1 chad = (0.2827 ÷ 117.71) x 100 = 0.2402% of £20
Value of 1 chad = 0.2402 x £5 = 4.804p
Value of 198 chads = 4.804p x 198 = £9.51

"Dissecting, directing and distilling contemporary artists' attitudes to money."
As half selective, half open show; LIQUIDIZER presents more than a dozen artists' responses to the theme of money through painting, sculpture, video, photography, text and magazine; on issues from global economic policy to pocket change.
LIQUIDIZER gives artists a chance to comment on the arts' particular relationship with economics, and on the wider instabilities that are currently affecting everyone. Many of the works will be on sale for £20.
