Dirty Money

(Perfomance and Installation, ArtOmi 2017) Dollar Bills, Board, Poison Ivy, Staples.

This is a piece about clean trade and how all of our hands are dirty, in our market fundamentalist society, by the time you trace supply chains to their source.

The artist stapled dollar bills to a board and proceeded to cover the board and bills in poison ivy. The oil in the ivy soaks into the bills and remains active, so as tempting as it is to grab the money, this currency cannot be put back into circulation.
