the golden cup

Started thinking of wrapping worthless objects in Gold

Gold is seen as more valuable than others

I decided to encase a used coffee cup from the bin, already seen as worthless rubbish in gold wrap to see if it is then considered worthy from ‘worthless to worthy’. If I have the golden cup placed in  a gallery space, what would peoples reactions be. Would the viewer consider it art work or waste?

I then decided to place it in its ‘natural habitat’ back in the canteen to see if people reacted.

If it was on a plinth would that make it untouchable? I will make a plinth especially tall to elevate its superiority.
