My Money Weavings series in all its permutations is the result of an acquisition of shredded one-hundred-dollar bills from the Federal Rreserve Bank. The bills have been decommissioned and no longer serve as monetary exchange. Perfect for incorporating into weaving, make a statement about the value of money. What is it worth? This is real money, paper/fiber for which we all clamor. I began to think about how often “money” pops up in our language, in our songs, in our expressions. I decided to weave them. The titles of each art work are indicative of the message of each work.
