Intro
The same way different metals and stones have unique properties that can be used to artistic effect, so does currency. The medium I use to construct works of art cannot be separated from its social constructs or from the personal experiences each viewer already has with money. This is why my work provokes questions about perceived value, inherent value, and social class.
