: American Dream :

How clever would you be if you went around asking people in Brooklyn what their dream is, had them write it inside a cartoon speech bubble, and then took pictures?

Quite clever, because you'd expose just how broken -- and yet how alive -- the American Dream is.

That's how this girl got on the wall in fake grass in the back"yard" of a gallery in Williamsburg. Her dream is to "be happy." Other honorable mentions include, "To live like a human being," and "my dream was to stay drunk." I wonder why they didn't put that last one up larger-than-life on the wall.
