Jamahl McMurran is an Airbnb host who decided to partake in a social experiment with his guest, a Croatian photographer and artist named Lana Mesic. The experiment was to put around 15,000 coins on the ground outside of the home and take pictures of people’s reactions to the coins as they passed by them.
These were coins that Lana had been traveling with but didn’t want to drag around anymore because they were too heavy. So, the initiated the experiment and watched as people curiously grabbed coins and stared at them. Some people grabbed a few coins while others grabbed bags full of coins. Finally, the last person took all the coins that were left.
