Related pages:  Millionaire (numbers)One by One.

The Millionaire is divided into one thousand series of one thousand. Each series consists of a single action, gesture, sound, text, object, etc. repeated one thousand times. Each iteration is unique. Each unique work that is purchased is time-stamped and numbered and chronologically compiled on the One by One page. When purchasing one or more from the million works in the Millionaire the artist chooses the series, unless otherwise specified by the purchaser.

A new set of 100 comes out every year.
