Penny Experiment, 78 of 100

Seriously. I’m just delighted and impressed with Jeffrey Strain’s Penny Experiment, and I am proud as hell that I’m able to participate in it.

His concept is to leverage a single found penny into something bigger. Among the conceptual tricks up his sleeve to transform one cent into real change is his call out for artists to create original, postcard-sized art to donate for sale to raise funds (got yer crayons handy? there may be a few numbers left! run don’t walk!). Jeff’s goal for the project is to generate food bank donations and purchases.

Clever, creative, heartfelt, and other-oriented. Really great stuff.

  1. Yes, this is a riff on John Cusack in ‘Say Anything.’

    More to the theme of 78, my assigned number, there’s the matter of the really old records that spun at 78 RPMs. Also a tip of the hat to the fact that 78 is divisible by 13, six times. Used the odd-meter 7/8 time signature to capture the numerals.

    And apropos of nothing, the opening notes are D, A, and G.
