Origami Currency

Using the medium of authentic currency, the artist folds origami shapes such as dragonflies, cows, and roses, each referencing various luxury brands. The arrangement of these shapes, sometimes neatly gridded and other times placed in random formations, convey the smooth appeal of fashion advertisements. The folded paper float idyllically as if grazing on an Arcadian field, yet the coy prick of money delivers a direct critique of the shallow pursuit of materialism.
