Develop a project that requires a variable of chance that prompted change within the everyday.


The initial idea was to pop-up swap meet on the streets of Detroit, we would supply a seed inventory and record the transactions. By focusing on perceived value of objects, we then began to introduce the idea of tracking an items evolution through trades.
This was concept continued to evolve, turning our swap table into one that juxtaposed Maslow's hierarchy of needs with the participants desire of the object. We categorized the objects by level of need and would record the trade transactions to determine the overall immediate well-being and needs of that area.
