  • The world is changing. We live in a much different world than our ancestors did one hundred years ago. The Industrial Revolution changed a lot of things. Economies of the countries grew bigger and bigger as the consumption snowballed. But the world is a closed system. We have finite amount of money. In a closed system if someone prospers, someone else must flounder. In our modern times, almost half of the world -over three billion people- live on less than $2.5 a day. One child out of two lives in poverty. Yet, with just a small percentage of the money spent for arms industry each year, we can solve all of the developing countries' basic problems.

    My project is all about this situation. The name speaks for itself: MISSPENT "Where does the money flow, where should the money flow?"... It is a book that aims to inform people about the huge amounts of money we spend every year, and what can be done with just a fraction of it.

    The logo of the book is the word MISSPENT cut diagonally in half from each side of the letter 'S'. Instead of two S's in the word there is only one, therefore one 'S' is saved. This reflects the message of the book: Don't spend your money on unnecessary things. Spend wisely.


  • You can view the entire book online at www.misspent.net
  • At the end of the exhibition, these reminder cards (that look like actual credit cards) were presented to the guests as to reveal the final message: SPEND WISELY.
