    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!

Artist Dominic Wilcox Creates Art Exhibition Specifically For Dogs

Wilcox1

London-based artist and designer Dominic Wilcox (if you don’t know who he is you have to watch this) has come up with the ultimate contemporary art exhibition for dogs as part of an initiative to encourage people to play more with their pets.

Working in consultation with veterinary experts, installations include an open car window simulator and a 10 ft ball pit made to look like a dog bowl filled with dog food. Paintings by artists Claire Mallison, Joanne Hummel-Newell, Robert Nicol and Michelle Thompson hang low to the ground and specifically draw on colours within dogs’ visual spectrum.

Such a great idea! Check out more images and video of the exhibit below, including some of Wilcox’s preliminary sketches!
