Artist Makes Skull Out of US Money


Scott Campbell is an unusual artist - in his latest work he used dollar bills to make an original sculpture.

With the help of lasers and dollars, the former tattoo artist made a skull, which is, by the way, the most asked for tattoo.

In his work, Campbell brought the 2D image of a skull intro three dimensions and presented the skull made of unused US currency at the Oh Wow art gallery in Los Angeles, where he opened his Noblesse Oblige exhibit.

The artist used sheet of American money with a total value of $11,000 to make a 2-foot cube and then carved a skull out of it.

His work may lead us to the though of how arbitrary money can seem. More images can be found here.
