A jukebox-based installation featuring stories and sounds from the working lives of residents of Greene and Columbia counties. The stories are edited to a length, corresponding with the amount of time it takes each interviewee to earn $1, creating an inverse relationship between monetary value and time. The project, which was first exhibited at the Cairo Public Library, was created by Tennessee Watson and Laura Hadden as a part of an AIR Live Interactive Residency in 2013 at free103point9 Wave Farm, and WGXC 90.7-FM in Acra, NY, with financial support provided, in part, by the National Endowment for the Arts.
