For my trade-up project, I started with a weird galvanized nail. I traded that for a full pack of gum, which I exchanged for a half full can of spray paint, then a 3/4 full can of a different kind of spray paint, then finally for a brand new paint marker. Here’s the tumblr I made for my items: http://iamnardo.tumblr.com/
The Red Paper Clip project started with a small hinge, which i then traded for a small retractable pen, which was traded for a japanese lucky ticket, which then got me a ceramic skull from Mexico, then was traded for a bottle of aspirin and two rings.

For the final project, students were asked to present their sophomore reviews. Although I completed my review last year, I used the opportunity to think critically about my practice and re-do my website/artist statement/resume.
My presentation of works contains notes:
My website/artist statement/resume can be found here (some projects have not been posted yet)
For this trade project, I began with a single small hinge which I traded for an empty beer bottle, then for a college of Computer Science pen, then for pocket LED flashlight.
