  • Very very cool concept. I kind of want one.

  • Luke

    so sick!

  • Nice, I can see a philosophy under them.

  • Nambo

    OH YES! VERY NICE TO SEE THIS KIND OF THING MADE WITH MONEY!!

  • At first I thought they were going to be money sculptures, I love the forms created to get the right words, almost organised folding but I like how it’s not all straight, the way that the letters are at different angles and there are different sized folds is really interesting. I’d love to make drawings of these as the shapes themselves and then another set of drawings of just the type.

  • Damn, thats awesome!!

  • Hoffman

    ..you’ll be rich soon
