In order to illustrate the gap between high investments and low outcome of multimedia art installations the work tried to illustrate this issue by achieving the maximum size of an artwork for a minimum of investments: paper shredder and moss were recycled from personal waste for the exhibition, the wire screen was bought at ‚Bauhaus‘ – a retail chain for building and contruction – and brought back after the exhibition. Thus, overall expenses for this artwork were approximately only € 48,00. The work was accompanied by a cynical text written on the tiled walls: naming the artist’s production process including budgeting, overall art marketing and business, illustrated by a photo of Carl Spitzweg ‘the poor poet’.
