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
