Why not buy the food, do a photographic spread of it in some eye popping way, then donate the food? Generate pr with the food giveaway

That could work. But that something different. This is all about shocking people. I've gotten a whole lot of reactions already. It's all about sustainability! I'm hoping this will make people think about the way they consume food. This isn't about feeding the poor. That's a different project.

And sarang hae, it has to be Norwegian money, and a part of the project is also about getting the money!

I think whitney's right

 

i get what you're going for, shredded cash carries a lot more weight/shock value then just a ton of food.  Plus even if you decided to do $3500 worth of food instead you'd still need to raise $3500.

 

But on the other hand the food + donation option seems more legitimate to the cause you're trying to raise awareness of.  Also you gotta think about people's reactions.  Sure the cash would shock people but it would also prompt thoughts like: "this guy shredded $3500 that he could have donated to the cause if he really cared..." etc.  Food + donation would be the better option imo.

I see your point, and I've thought it through. But my belief is that this will end up more valuable than just donating money. It's not so much about the the actual food. It's not about the fact that we could feed people with the food/money we throw away. How ever decadent that may sound. It's about sustainability. It's about how all this over consumption is ruining out planet. For example 20% of all the green house gases in the US comes from rotting food.

I'm ready for all those thoughts. I want that. I want to get people thinking.

But thanks for all the input, I do appreciate it!

Food is definitely the more tasteful way to convey your concept.

Well, kind of the whole point. It's not any less pretentious throwing away food just cause you don't want leftovers!

What's the point of it? For you to look back at it and wonder how you were such a pretentious fuck?

What are you even trying to do? Fix the environment by taking a picture of shredded money? What the fuck is that going to solve? Even if you succeeded to make a change, it's not like people will donate the amount of saved money or anything, they'll just use it on other shit which fucks up the environment. 

People here giving you legit advice, which would benefit both people in need and your so-called cause, but you won't listen to it, because you want shock value, not because you want to change the environment, but because people will then see you as edgy. "Damn, that guy just maculated 22k, he doesnt give a fuck"

Do you see how you're being pretentious now?

edit: People don't throw away food just because they don't want leftovers, they throw it away because it's gone bad. 

Or maybe they do throw it out because they just don't want leftovers in Norway. I've seen videos of norwegians pouring out expensive champagne in their sinks (which reminds me of the shit you're trying to pull)

Maybe people in Norway just have a thing about throwing shit away.

If you´re only going to photograph the shredded money, why not just get fake money, shred it and then lie about it?

You should shred jawnz instead. Maybe spread some sort of anti-consumerism message. Start with all yours first then ask for donations.

Helmut Lang: "MAKE IT HARD"

 

The designer famed for his minimal style has launched his latest East Hamptons expo, shredding his own clothing archive to make sculptures

Read: http://www.dazeddigital.com/artsandculture/article/10975/1/helmut-lang-make-it-hard

 

 2011.

 

if i understand it right, he had also just received a number of "donations" of classic hl pieces from private collections to the brand archive he kept in an office space above the now theory-owned store on mercer st.

 

now whose "shredding" project is the more effete and masturbatory stunt, helmut's or OP's ... ? u decide

Wow, I never thought this would go so far over sufu'er head!

Gofundme is only one way I'm raising money. With cash and a bank account I'm almost half way there. The school will fund the second half when I reach the half way point.

your reactions is the whole point of this. Hope you talk all kinds of shit about it!

I'll have at least one, maybe two articles in major norwegian newspapers by the end of next week. My school is backing me on this, so it'll be a big part of the promotion for the exhibition.

Yeah man, it totally went over our heads. Too deep for us. Superfuture isn't really a haven for intellectuals or aesthetes, maybe try somewhere like Reddit for raising funds?

Furthermore, fuck the photos.  He could have a constant feed or display of fake money being shred endlessly over a pile of food and still make a vivid point.

It tickles me though because the money thing just ain't new.  A friend of mine studying at mcad years ago posed some mannequins in sexual positions and the mannequins were papier-mâché'd with money.  As far as the food theme, hell, Kurt Vonnegut gave us eating as blue-movie porn in one of his books before most of us were even born.

      To celebrate 10 years of giving art away, I have opened The Inutilious Retailer at 151 Ludlow Street, NY
       
      Featuring legendary NY graffiti artist Adam Cost's first indoor installation, the store contains clothes bought from retailers who rip designers off, which have then been made back into one off pieces by artists.
      Pull the useless 1929 slot machine and use your imagination to get the clothing free, on condition that you make something to replace it for someone else to "buy"

      I would like to contact art suppliers, got a low budget and would appreciate to buy even from students (if fits my taste). I like avant garde, avant pop, futurist, hyperrealist, asian,and minimalist paintings. Any cool ideas?

      DEADLINE TO SEND PACKAGES: August 22, 2013 September 6, 2013 September 20, 2013 September 30
      Setting a strict email cut off date at REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED. Emails sent after will be ignored.

      *Date subject to being shortened. Not extended.
      I'm not going to just assume that everyone from the previous thread will be up for this right away when hosted by me, so I will need everyone to do the following as the first steps to participating in the swap:1) Post in this thread that you want to participate
      2) Email me the following information:

      Subject Line: Username / Superswap v7

      a. Full Name (First, Last)
      b. Address
      c. Primary Email Address
      d. Shipping preferences (If you for some reason cannot do international shipping, prefer to be within your continent, etc.)
      e. Size information (Shirt, shoes, pants, etc.)*

      Please follow the subject line. This makes it way easier for me.

      Email this info to: ___________________
      Once you have completed these two steps, your name will be in bold on the list in this post. You will not participate in this swap unless your name is in bold.I have no idea whether this should require a post minumum, rep minimum, etc. but really anyone can turn into an asshat or shit happens in life that has nothing to do with post count or rep. If you fucked up in previous swaps, don't even bother trying to sign up for this. I'm expecting the lot of you to keep an eye out for fuck ups too, I'm not gonna study the previous swap. So call them out when you see them.
      Please commit to shipping your package with delivery confirmation and tracking. Even if you're a stand up person and all, shit happens with the mail so its really easier for everyone if you pay whatever for that extra tracking. Talk to me if you really cannot do this.
      More steps and dates will be announced as this progresses. Lets make this a good one. Also lets try to not have any supercare packages this time around. Thinking about putting a cap on the amount of participants as well. We will see.
      Participants who have shipped their packages will be in green.

      Hey Guys.

      Some friends and I are working on putting out the first issue of our online quarterly lit mag. It's called BASED. We're working out of San Francisco, Iowa City, and New York. There is no word limit, although we're really looking for prose poems, lyric essays and flash fiction. Interviews would be nice, too. There's also a need for artwork, photography and graphic essays/unusual comics. I think it'd be fun to incorporate animated GIFs and short video pieces as well.

      So if you're interested, please send me a PM.

      Deadline for submissions for the debut issue is October 1st, 2013. But we're always accepting new material. Only previously unpublished works will be accepted.
       
      Thanks for reading!
