    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!

One of the things that makes Booooooom unique is all the encouraging comments people send back and forth on these monthly submission posts. If you’re going to share your work please take an extra second to leave a nice comment on someone else’s work!

Voting up work is like high-fiving that person and it also helps us see what work you guys like! Remember, even if your work isn’t featured on the main site these posts can send some decent traffic to your portfolio! The link at the bottom will open up this full post, simply scroll down and use the commenting system to submit your work.

3. You can/should also encourage people who are sharing good work here! Comment on their posts and let them know you like what they’re doing. I really want to foster a community here, and this is a simple way you can connect with other people making work.
