About This Artwork: This is about a lot of things-my different interests at the time, which included photosynthesis and biology stuff. because I used shredded money, it occurred to me that the plant matter could be the root of money and how our thoughts on value seem to have sprung from nature, but despite how organic they seem, it really hasn't.
