Day 275 ~ Use your pocket change to make something. + Day 276 ~ Put your finger on a random location on a map of the world, research that place and make something about it.

I put my finger on A Coruna, Spain, where the founder of ZARA, Amancio Ortega, opened the first ZARA store in 1975 on a central street downtown (according to Wikipedia). I chose this fact about the economy to work with because of the second part of this project ~ to use pocket change.

I got the ad from Google 'Images of ZARA'. After spreading the pennies, nickles, dimes and quarters on my scanner bed I scanned and printed the image, cut the print into the shape of the coat and glued it in place.
