Art objects differ from other objects as they are intentionally created to embody a producer’s (i.e. artist’s) expression. Hence art objects are social objects whose appeal and value is largely determined by the strategic interaction between the artist and the audience. I discuss several aspects how strategic interaction can affect an art object’s perceived value and aesthetic appeal.
