    Amazing! Is this done with whatever they use to make architectural models? Looks like the same kind of topography…

  • im not sure the exact process but from what i understand the bills are cut with a laser

    In the second photo, there’s a dollar bill at the bottom, but in the first photo, the bottom is blank.

  • good eye
    its a conspiracy!

  • LOL

  • Real sweet. How much money was that all together?

    • usually he does a stack of 100 one dollar bills

  • Freaking amazing! I love money used in art. I can’t recall the name of the artist right now, but I saw a show in Boston when I was going to RISD where an artist crushed up money and then put a light behind it created shadows of 2 people drinking together. This kind of remind me of damien hirst meets this other artist. Love it!

  • Tyler Austin Bradley

    I would like a laser to cut money with. But I would cut Canadian Tire money. Then, Douglas Coupland would send me an e-mail and I would have it made.

  • Fuck. That is Awesome. Feels like a play on Damien Hirst. Makes me want to make it rain.

  • this is really interesting. I like the deformation within the image that would normally be on the note in the top down view in the last image.

  • how much did this cost? i need lunch. im hungry

  • Mark L

    Awesome! Now he can “make it rain”…death!

Captivating Stop-Motion Dissections of Everyday Objects by Artist Simon Gerbaud

Simon Gerbaud

 

Artist Simon Gerbaud has created a series of animations involving the incremental destruction of various objects like shoes and hairdryers as well as larger things like refrigerators and shopping carts. While the stop motion creations are strangely satisfying to watch on their own, Gerbaud has used them in several interactive installations in the past.

At the XII Feria de las Calacas in Mexico in 2012, the footage was synched to audience activated sensors so that the objects would disappear (or reappear) according to people’s movements, noises or breathing in the room. Check out more images and video of Gerbaud’s fascinating work below!
