What money is?
Money has always been the medium of exchange for goods and service.
Money can express the value and denote its price.
Any art associated with dollar carries extra meanings. Manipulation of currency in any form is illegal. So any transformation of banknotes is a form of rebellion.
In our work we use dollar because besides being the symbol of the most powerful economy it can be perceived as a general symbol of money, because it is known all over the world. This series is our reflection on such issues as the value of money and what it means to different people and how it influences the entire world.
For this series we combine digital and analogue photographic techniques. Some prints are made with a particular technology that we had elaborated for this series – hand printing on black & white liquid photographic emulsion over 23K gold leaf on cotton paper.
