Ruin Me featured original artwork- prints of people, paintings of land, sea & sky, photographs of a salary and drawings of nature that were destroyed by the people who came to the opening night.
Near each artwork, suspended from the ceiling, were the implements that the visitors used to ruin each piece: scissors, pens, markers, a saw, corkscrew and hammer.
The ruined artworks were for sale and priced less than the cost of the materials used to produce them.
Throughout the night, an original score by Scott Weiser was also presented and ruined by visitors.
