Dollar Bill Surgeon (12 photos)

75 0 0

Some people spend money, some save, some wipe their ass with money -Scott Campbell cuts it to pieces with lasers. The piece above, titled Pièce de Résistance, uses $11,000 worth of one dollar sheets to create an over two-foot cube, into which a 3-D skull is carved-out. If you're in L.A., you can catch Campbell's most recent solo show, Noblesse Oblige, in person at OHWOW gallery until 4.22.11.

    Do you get the feeling that he believes money will be the death of us all?

    • Dick LeGrande

      Not me. I think what he is trying to say is that money is a tool just like any other tool, or it could be that he got a lot of money to turn into art, and he don't give a fuck.

    but if this are invalid bills they would have put a straight bright red line in each one of them to make sure it won't be mistaken as circulation money…
    So I think this is real money…
    (unless that's the fake money that the police confiscates at raids)

    These are so cool…but I didn't think it was legal to destroy or deface our currency. I guess that anything goes in the name of art!!
