Process for Milan

If all goes well, I should have final pieces within the week!

The project, called More Than It’s Worth, comes from consideration of the intangibility of currency in the modern digital networked world, and what other potential values of the physical totems of money we can find.

The final pieces will be the same amount ($2.00) worth of US currency, melted and drip-cast over a cast-iron die. Each bowl in the series is made of one type of coin (pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters and dollar coins), demonstrating the curious relationships between face, melt and aesthetic value of each.

Some pics of the plastic prototypes (the making of which is show in the video up top):
