The Button Project, an art-commerce event, unusual on the Trini artscape where artists are never supposed to be seen as having any commercial connection to their work, other than via red dots and well-spoken, well-commissioned, socialite gallerists. This project was independently staged and funded by the artist and pieces were designed and priced to go. From the price patches which were themselves larger than the actual pieces, to the volume discounts you could receive with the size of your purchase; the commerciality was a gloriously refreshing affirmation of independence, creativity and sustainability.
