Turning trash into cash

garbage-wants|Two genius art directors in the advertising business, Christine Santora and Justine Gignac from NYC, have devised a method for getting what they want. Wants for sale: they paint their object of desire (e.g. a Wii at $270.92) and sell the painting for the retail price of the object, then they really purchase the item. Needs for sale: they paint for charity or nonprofit groups, who receive the full payment of the painting. Christine and Justine also have another nice project running: garbage sculptures: they collect garbage at special events and sell it in a clear box for $50 to $100 (thanks, mestudio).
