“Red Paperclip” by Nicholas Sardo (2014)

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/DSC_1198

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 more information follow the documented journey at the attached link: www.tumblr.com/blog/phaseintime

For the semester-long ‘red paperclip’ project, I started with a small black binder clip.  I traded this for a hand-written sign, which I quickly traded for two pieces of mint gum.  I held onto the gum until presented with a trade for 10 ft. of multicolored duct tape.  I crafted this tape into a duct tape wallet.  I traded the duct tape wallet for a leather wallet and a name tag, which is where I now stand with my trades.

For this project, each student was given an object of very little monetary value. We were then supposed to trade up for things of greater value. I started with a miniature bungee cord and ended with an official Carnegie Mellon campus police whistle. You can see all of my in-between trades here: www.tumblr.com/blog/watchhannahtrade

“Presentation of Works” by Sam Ticknor (2014)

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:

Documentation of the red paper clip project can be found here.

This project was a failure for me. Initially excited about trading, I quickly traded by Bert figurine for half of a cigarette, which I knew I would be in demand once my roommates got home. Shortly after, I traded the cigarette for a mini lighter, which I lost after a few days.

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.
