Ink on Printer Ribbon, Ink, Calculator
This piece invites us to enter a number into a calculator that represents financially what one blade of grass, a fish, or a drop of water is worth. The prompt, which encourages you to place a monetary value on nature, can be changed daily or weekly.
The calculator ribbon has fish silkscreened on it. You can take the piece of calculator ribbon with you or leave it to coil at the gallery.
