The $$ project was intended as a commentary on the role money played in the decision to award the site to Cornell over its rivals competing for it, rather than the quality of the architectural master plan each team had submitted. 


The work consisted of large red shapes painted on the roofs and North faces of the five hospital building slated to be demolished to make way for the new Cornell campus. These were intended to be seen as one looked south while driving toward the center of the Queensboro bridge from Manhattan towards Queens. At the moment one reached the center the shapes will have gathered themselves into a giant $ sign, an anamorphic moment of recognition, lasting only a second, only to disperse quickly as one drove away towards Queens.
