Andrew Liversidge's cube of 10,000 AUD 1.00 coins, IN MY MIND I KNOW WHAT I THINK BUT THAT’S ONLY BASED ON MY EXPERIENCE, finds a fan in Robert Nelson in his review in The Age of Reinventing the Wheel - The Readymade Century at Monash University Museum of Art. "One of the strongest pieces is a handsome golden cube made up of dollar coins from 2009. The artist, Andrew Liversidge, didn't personally mint the coins but borrowed them from the bank. The coins are individually a kind of ready-made but the artwork is the outcome of ingenious transformation. To call the creation a ready-made stretches the definition. There are 100 stacks of 100 coins. Placing them all in their straight columns would have taken some time and patience; but above all, it's the inventive idea - almost a coup of mathematics - that reveals the intervention of the artist. The result is an archaic gilded temple of small change, a vault without an interior, a chamber that is solid with its own treasure, a storage of pure bullion that seems to weigh on the floor, as if tangibly stamping the awesome footprint of capital."
