Ana Armengod (Mexico) presented the Gifted Egg Project to FNV students for a special weekend workshop. Ana explains  that The Gifted Egg Project ” consists of me making really detailed and time consuming pointillism drawings on eggshells and I give them as a gift, then I ask the person to break them, in front of me and I document their reactions, they never want to break the eggs, they are overcome with emotions, anxiety of breaking something I worked so hard on, and then wanting to keep it. It’s an exercise in letting go, and making things about experience and not possessions”.
