Klemens Schillinger — Element 79 – Aurum Charts
The project looks at the material of gold from a rational point of view. The gold price is controlled by supply and demand. Among other things, these are driven by speculation and inflation fears as well as political and economic events. Even though gold was already used as a medium of exchange and value storage in antiquity, the gold rate can vary widely, both over long and short periods time.
The rings designed for the project illustrate how much gold the same sum of money (adjusted for inflation) could buy in the years given.
