a needle in a hay stack

[The exhibition/performance-based installation A Needle in a Hay Stack is part of the tramptrail project].

The installation A Needle in a Hay Stack is based on the following two premises:

1. In French to say 'to have hay in the boots' means to have a lot of money.
The word boots (bottes) also refers to a 'stack' as in haystack

2. To look for a needle in a haystack is to look for something impossible to find.
