art+collage=money?

while on vacation, i caught up on a lot of reading>>>i read 4 books, such as the one you see in the snap of me lounging on that comfy daybed i mentioned previously... i did, though, venture outside to explore the village (as we were a few hundred yards away from main street, where all the hub-bub of this sleepy lakeside town) & was delighted to discover a neat little bookstore, where i picked up the latest copy of cloth paper scissors {yay!}...have you seen this?? the altered mannequin form on its cover caught my eye...too wicked cool...& then i came across this article about making art collages into actual currency! had you ever heard of such a thing? this whole concept is courtesy of this danish artist, lars kraemmer, who in 1997 came up with this intriguing idea to use art as an alternative to traditional currency...WOW, i think this is an exciting idea...i think i will need to learn more about this before i start jumping on the bandwagon...the article says to check out the bank of international art money (biam) to learn the "411" about art money>>>go here & see for yourself! food for thought anyway.
