Alex Pardee’s ‘Vertigo A Decade of Hunting Nightmares‘ exhibition is opening January 8, 2011 at the Corey Helford Gallery in Culver City.

We’d all be happy with a cool million. But what about $1 trillion? Couldn’t fathom spending it all in your lifetime or even visualizing that much money? One individual (realistically) couldn’t spend it all in their lifetime. Even if you stayed at the most expensive suite at the Atlantis in the Bahamas (the Bridge Suite…it runs for $25,000 a night) every day for over 100 years, you still would have money left over.
