Rodrigo Torres; Currency Collages

Brazilian artist Rodrigo Torres creates stunning three-dimensional collages by carefully cutting and layering currency from all over the world. Torres plays with the design of each banknote and sometimes mixes currencies from different countries, the same way an artist would use a palette to mix paints. “I try to intervene in a way that has something to do with the fabrication process of the object." he say, "for example, in the case of banknotes, I make some interventions with an X-Acto knife, very meticulously, because it has to do with the work of the engraver, what he has done there.”
