Nature: International Bank Notes Turned into Delicate Botanical Sculptures by Justine Smith
Fascinated with the concept of money and how it touches almost every aspect of our lives. London-based artist Justine Smith creates delicate plant sculptures made of international bank notes and encased in glass domes. Inspired by specimens found near her studio, Smith recreates Victorian museum displays often incorporating real plants and insects. Via her website, "through her collages, prints and sculptures she examines our relationship with money in a political, moral and social sense, whilst also exploiting the physical beauty of the notes."
