Seventy-seven different charms, modeled in wax and cast in bronze, were offered to patrons of a Las Vegas casino in exchange for their own unsatisfactory lucky charms, which were then displayed and offered for further exchanges. All transactions were documented with Polaroids on which participants were invited to write comments.
Two sets of seventy-seven bronze charms (one for swapping, one for display only), Polaroids, swapped items, and two wood shelves, each charm: approx. 1–3″ (2.5–7.6 cm) high; each shelf: 19′ (5.79 m) long, acrylic on wall. Edition of charms: 2 plus 2 artist’s proofs.
