Beyond The Goldmine Standard: RPM Music

16 May 2015
 Involving 59 artists and totalling a collection of 67 records, the walls and shelves of RPM Music are now brimming with an ecclectic selection of these re-imagined albums.
Whilst we might recognise certain symbolic, personal and cultural value in the presence of writing or other visible interventions on the surface of record covers, another register of value, the Goldmine Standard, sees such ‘residue’ as marring or detrimental to a record’s corresponding worth. Beyond the Goldmine Standard deems differently, and has been an invitation to think beyond such regimented classification.
