Collection: Intergalactics (2014)

World Dollaration continued in 2014, with Dollarsandarts second 28 strong, bold, collage style collection enthusiastically compiled as Wheat celebrated and embraced the valuable nostalgia of his youth...... 

 

....choosing to collect and work with some out of this world space related collectables each with it's own story featuring rare earth elements including the Atari 2600 becoming a vibrant a story-telling 30 x 40 inch Intergalactic artwork....

Jim Wheat preparing '$pace Invader$' circa late 2013 / early 2014 in the sands of Al Quoz, Dubai, U.A.E

...with each and every uplifting piece embracing the dollar sign as the flow of energy relentlessly marched on, each creation becoming a much more than meets the eye story in itself, for example....

#2 — $PACE INVADER$
$ Early gaming in my lounge from the late 1970's
$ Rare earth components and furniture!
$ Fancy another game?

Original 1976 Atari 2600 games console with space related game cartridges, space invaders wallet, space money, bubble wrap and a red aerial Dollarshot on yellow with sand elements with green and orange acrylic on canvas with a signed $1 bill by the artist.

Box frame 41 inches  x 50 inches
 

From conceptualising each 28 piece artwork to collecting each valuable and rare component thanks largely to the sand we take so much for granted....

 with Wheat as hands on as ever selecting each and every component to leverage the best story possible for each element of the collection....

'Hi Mum, I'll call you back later - just in a meeting'

It was way more than a 'Toy Story' for those prepared to dig deeper....

where yet again, $64,000 of Dollarsandart was given away in exchange for $1 bills with some brilliant activation partners during 28 days of immersible experiences....

Thanks to Wheat's vision it was the first exhibition to adopt augmented reality  - click, point and the story behind each painting is told on your phone....

A first for the region in terms in true immersible technology. One trick that was missed was a headphones partner to really immerse the viewer into the story behind each and every 28 intergalactic piece....

No time for that - keep on keeping on!

Taking up a notch further with Dells Alienware literally becoming the main component feature of the $20,000 U.A.E Space Raiders...

'How I turn this thing on?'


This got SKY news interested....

 With the launch helping The Intergalactics collection really take off!

 Art with a story! Out of this world as ballot slips were completed, Alienware tech up for grabs, cell phones and on it goes....

The story moved on after the show and a couple of selective art sales (Wheat only sells to people he has met and likes!?) with the UAE Space raiders landing in Jumbo Electronics, Mall of the Emirates for 12 weeks in association with Alienware....

 

With the majority held at The Meydan hotel as the dance continues.....

So here goes, dig deep and enjoy The INTERGALACTICS COLLECTION and the space age components within - each on tells a story and here's to them finding the right home at the right time! The artist prefers to personally meet buyers of his original work - nothing personal - it's an energy thing!
