London-based artist Justine Smith uses paper as her main medium when creating works of art. Her latest work sees her recreating Victorian museum displays by collaging torn up strips of money. “When it comes down to it, money’s just paper,” she notes as she recounts how she was inspired by the insects and plants spotted around her studio. The currencies used are both old and new, it comes from countries all around the world and if you’re wondering how she can afford to shred tens-of-thousands of dollars to make her sculptures…well, you can apparently buy bags of shredded money on eBay for next to nothing.
