    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

  • Z0NU5

    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!
