    Abstract:
    Auction action – commission an artwork, listed on eBay as ART, LIMITED EDITION, PRINT | Auction action – commission an artwork #exstrange, were transformative actions that occurred within the context of the networked performance Transformations: Actions to Matter / Matter to Actions. Transformative actions within Transformations attempt to source items for free online and then sell them online. Actions that are performed online are considered to occur within a 'virtual' or digital context. Items that are acquired as a result of actions are physically manifested in 'real' contexts. A transformation therefore occurs from 'virtual' to 'real' and then back to 'virtual' again. The internet is both a staging ground for initiating transformation as well as the final destination for the items acquired and the documentation produced.
