If you give me between $100 to $400 I will find a moon tree and kiss it for you. Do you know what a moon tree is? In 1971 Stuart Roosa was the Apollo 14 Command Module Pilot while his comrades were down on the moon. Stuart, a former smoke jumper, had brought with him hundreds of tree seeds. He wanted to take them to the moon. He wanted to do this because he knew that when he planted the seeds on Earth they would grow as tall as they could because they would want to return to the moon. I will send you a photograph of me kissing a moon tree.
There are many moon trees. For each purchase I will go to a different moon tree. I will stop selling them once I went to all the moon trees. The more you give me the farther I will go. They are all over everywhere!

If you give me the total of the above (excluding the independent study fees) I will send you all (except under certain circumstances which we will discuss) the art-work I make during my graduate school studies. I just got accepted into the Bard MFA program. It is expensive. I am poor. If you just buy one semester, you will get the art made for that semester. If you pay for all three, you will get all three. Please email me if you are interested. This is an edition of 3, one for each semester. Get it while it lasts.
I will also be accepting small donations by anyone. For every donation I will send you a unique edition of one art-work on an 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper. It will be a conceptual piece and the paper will contain instructions as to how the piece should be carried out. This will only be for donations $20 or more.
SO FAR I HAVE RAISED $50 TO GO TO BARD FROM THE FOLLOWING PEOPLE:
If you give me $10 I will take a photograph of the sky just for you. That means I will go outside, shoot a photograph of the sky, print it as a 8.5" x 11" full color laser jet print, write the date on it, fold it into an envelope, and mail it to you. Oh, and I will also delete the file so that you will have the only existing copy of that photograph. It's just for you.

If you give me $630 I will give it to my landlord for the month's rent. I won't work for one month and I'll send you an email everyday of what I did and why it was important (unless I am away from a computer). Actually, I am going to need some more money for food and utilities. I am going to raise this to $1000. (NOTE: this is one person a month, if you buy this you will be given a specific month). I will also print out the emails I sent you everyday and mail it to you as a small edition of one artist book.
If you give me $250 I will buy you a PO Box in New York for a whole year. I will mail you the key. Throughout the year I will mail letters and things to the PO Box. I am hoping that you don't live in New York, and that where ever you are in the world you will know that there is a small PO Box in New York amassing with little things for you. You will come to New York before the year is up and collect the little pile. Since PO Boxes are small, it will be a small collection, so I will only mail things when I feel there is something special to send.

This one is really serious. I'm scared to do this. But I think I have to. If you give me $10 I will think really hard of someone who I need to apologize to. I will write them a letter of apology. I will make two copies of the letter. I will send one to you and one to the person who I am apologizing to.

If you give me $1,999 I will take a ferry from Spain to Morocco. I will mail you a photograph of the port in Spain looking out at sea from a Spanish mailbox. I will then mail you a photograph of the port in Morocco looking out at sea from a Moroccan mailbox. You can glue the backs together when you get both of them and it will be like a three dimensional view.
If you give me $800 I will take a train somewhere to ride a hot-air balloon. I will take polaroids from up in the sky and send it to you. Wendy from Ooga Booga is worried about my Carbon Footprint in all of these projects. She is right! That is why I won't fly on an airplane. I will send it from up in the sky! I will drop the stamped envelope from the sky and hope that someone will find it and put it in a mailbox. I will also make a video of me dropping the envelope and send you a DVD incase the polaroids never arrive. (look up balloon mail in the Siege of Paris!)
I think I will have to figure out the Carbon Offsetting price of all my projects now and figure them in.
If you give me $5 i will write down a secret and mail it to you. NOTE: I am not one to keep secrets. If you buy this, you may receive something that is really serious and may be upsetting, so please keep that in mind. Or, maybe it won't be upsetting at all. This is something you cannot tell anyone.
Nick Ripley owns a secret of mine.
Tomas James Russell owns a secret of mine.
James J Panegasser owns a secret of mine.
If you give me any amount of money I will cash it, put it in my pocket, grab my camera, and walk out my front door not knowing what I will do. I will then travel somewhere for as cheap as possible. I will keep just enough money so that I can get back. I will send you all the receipts and documentation of this. This is for any amount. If you give me $1 maybe I will walk out my door and buy a chocolate bar and then come home. If you give me $123 maybe I will get on a greyhound bus headed for who knows where. I will go somewhere and I will send you photos of there.
