That is the question. All money has to be designed or artistically created at some point, but when does art turn into money and money turn into art? After a few email conversations, I have entered into a sort of collaboration with another "Money Artist" who is asking the same questions, but going about it in a different way. The recently opened Exchanghibition Bank
a money based art project (or art based money project?) by artist Dadara
will be the source for my next few "money/art?" notes that I will be bonding for "Monetary Bondage"
|Me opening envelope|
I just received my first few notes today and can't wait to get started with designing the "frames" that will bond these gorgeous bills. I figure special "bills" deserve special treatment, so I am going to try something new for these "money notes" and hopefully it works out the way I have it envisioned in my head.
|This is some truly beautiful and inspiring "money" |
I'll be sure to document the entire transformation (bonding) process and keep you posted on how things progress. It seems the work just keeps piling up, I really gotta start cranking some stuff out, oh well, I guess I really can't complain about having to much "work" these days.
I just want to throw in a quick thank you to Dadara and the Exchangibition Bank for supporting my crazy idea.
I'll be back soon I'm sure, until then,
Peace and Love.
