Making Money: Into Other Stuff

wagner-1Have you ever met someone who has more money than they know what to do with? Don’t you with that was the biggest problem you had in your life? I know I do. Well, collage artist Mark Wagner has figured out something to do with those extra dollars. He destroys them, he cuts them into little pieces and glues them back together making large pieces of art.

As much as I don’t understand why he’s going what he does or how he’s not getting arrested for destroying money. I like the art. I’m not 100% up on the laws about cutting up dollars but I know if I were to attempts something like this they would pass a law if there isn’t one already and I’d end up in jail. I folded a dollar bill into a bow tie the other day and a police officer came banging on my later that evening.

Avant/Guard Diaries had the thought that they should film the creation process here so they made a video that you can check out after the jump.

Hit the jump for more art and the video.
