Justine Smith is an artist whose “work is an exploration of our relationship with money and our response to it, in a political, moral and social sense, whilst also exploiting the physical beauty of the note”.
The flowers above are made of Chinese and Turkmeni banknotes; “Ransom Money” is constructed from Iraqi Dinars, Afghan Afghanis, and Colombian Dinars. Brilliant.
There is lots more to see on her website, with a full detailing of the money collection.
wow those flowers are beautiful, the coloring really is perfect
