> DESCRIPTION

The Queens Museum dedicated a specific budget of $300 for production of the work.

What can I do in daily life with $300?

-Two weeks worth of groceries
-One-third of a month's rent
-Four months worth of metrocard
-Fill up the gas tank seven times
-Pay four months worth of cellular phone bills
-Eat sushi ten times
-Go out dancing on Roosevelt Avenue twice
-Go to the beach on three Saturdays
-Buy one pair of jeans, or one pair of shoes, or four shirts, or one jacket
-Buy a small digital camera
-Buy an iPod without accessories

I decided to buy $300 worth of wood and make a sculpture with it. I like to work with wood, and I like the fact that it is a natural resource, gentle, warm, a tree that was sacrificed
