Statement

I STILL JUST WANT TO BE A MILLIONAIRE (SO I CAN DO GOOD THINGS AND HELP PEOPLE) is an ongoing all-encompassing artwork…by Jeff Dodson

ISJWTBAM(SICDGTAHP) is my only artwork.

ISJWTBAM(SICDGTAHP) began in the year 2000.  It is a continuous reconfiguring of all of my stuffs that I don’t need that I have not yet figured out how to ethically get rid of.  It is 55 +/- full banana boxes – each box is an artwork made of artworks that all together are one artwork – the number of boxes trends up and down as stuffs reconfigure.  (Note:  I dispose of one bag of trash per year)

ISJWTBAM(SICDGTAHP) can fit into a space as small as 5x5x5 feet or expand to fit any space – each box is 10x16x20 inches and averages 25 pounds.  I will consider installing it, or part(s) of it, anywhere.  I will expose as much of it as possible within the given time and space.  I am open to living on-site during the process.  I am open to collaborating.  I am open to showing in conventional, alternative, and non-art spaces.

ISJWTBAM(SICDGTAHP) may be purchased for $1,000,000.
