One Hundred $1 USD Bills Were Destroyed and Used as Art Canvases

A waste of money, but actually not.

Art director and designer Marcus Kraft used real money as canvases for his art series titled “Money for Nothing.” The collection of art showcases 100 $1 USD bills ‘destroyed’ and artistically altered, with each bill representing a different result. According to federal law, any tampering of federal notes is liable for prosecution and can lead to imprisonment for up to 20 years; the project thus inquires upon the value of money with whimsical messaging, clever cut-and-pasting and even the obligatory “Illuminati” conspiracy theorizing upon the front and rear of each bill. The collection has also been compiled and produced into an exclusive book published by Zurich-based Hakuin Verlag and limited to 300 pieces; purchase your copy here.
