One Dollar Art: Laser-cut Money Made Worthless Gained Artistic Value

Artist Scott Campbell has effectively displayed us that with dozens on one dollar bills and some precise cutting you can create some amazing One Dollar Art which is a series of laser-cut etchings, each on a stack of $1 bills. Kind of a crime against the nature,  to ruin your dollar bills. Although, everything goes when it comes to art. We hope that his investment pays off in the end.

    Its only illegal to deface Money if you plan on using it to pay a debt. Meaning if you did that to a stack of dollar bills, and hung it on the wall you are ok. If you try to buy a cheeseburger, then you go to jail. Silly silly

  2. A very interesting article, was the laser used a YAG or Co2?

    Thanks

  3. Jimmy M says:

    You guys have totally missed the point. great concept and awesome finished product. You can research all you want about your constitution and laws but how about some art theory to get the point behind this. Do you really think it would have this effect if it were on paper, it wouldn’t generate such debate for one. Very interesting and original, well done sir.

  4. SK says:

    who could care less if its legal or not to make a few holes in a dollar bill? do you hand yourself over to the police when you rip a note trying to get it out of your wallet too fast? if you dont like his art that’s your opinion, but there’s no need to be such a tool about it

    as for people starving because of someone wasting a few dollars – you’ve no doubt spent enough money on frivolus things instead of using it to feed and clothe the poorest of people – where exactly is the difference?

  5. metric drill file says:

    Wow, skulls, the madonna, guns and jesus in one site, what an imagination he must have! Loser.

  6. Shelby says:

    Oh my God, Marko. Get over it. It’s his life, and his money. If he feels the need to do something creative with it, he will. It’s art. Let it be. If you don’t like it, don’t look at it. There is a little button with an “x” in the top right corner for that reason. Comprende? Hope so.

  7. Sigh says:

    For anyone who has the gall to destroy money, while people are starving, can go get smashed by a Bart for all I care.

    If it were Counter-fit money? Damn, lasers are hot.

  8. orange says:

    legal or not its still bad a*s.

    Marko call the feds on me too I smash pennies on the rails

  9. Mobzle says:

    Shutup

  10. Batfish says:

    Do it with $100 bills and I’ll think about being impressed.

  11. Marko says:

    He’s an idiot, for the following reason:

    Title 18 United States Code, Section 333

    Mutilation of national bank obligations

    Whoever mutilates, cuts, defaces, disfigures, or perforates, or unites
    or cements together, or does any other thing to any bank bill, draft,
    note, or other evidence of debt issued by any national banking
    association, or Federal Reserve bank, or the Federal Reserve System,
    with intent to render such bank bill, draft, note, or other evidence
    of debt unfit to be reissued, shall be fined under this title or
    imprisoned not more than six months, or both.
