Project Less: It turns out that it is possible to use supermarket self-checkout machines to buy nothing. This was done frequently during a two-year period and hundreds of the resulting receipts, proof of these zero-transactions, were collected. The receipts were compiled into books (Less and More Less); an A0 poster version was made availble; an 'how to' tutorial (originally created for #LowTechLabLondon2016 which took place at Saatchi Gallery) was shared, and another 'simupoem' (Exchanging) was developed. The original sound recording of the interaction which inspired Exchanging is also availble to listen to.
