Currency Crush

Crushing enlarged, intricately detailed pictures of currency bonded to metal is an attempt to manipulate physical currency and understand it in its most basic form – a human construct –thereby allowing for the exploration of the subsequent visceral changewith something so familiar and private. Making money big or turning it into steel blocks, at times rusted, is an attempt to break the bond that many have to this simple piece of paper, thus revoking its value and returning it to the material object that it actually is.
