U.S. Currency is Cool Again December 10, 2007

Posted by goodmind in Attribute Dependency, Multiplication.

Here’s a money idea; origami with bills.  We’ve all been privvy to the parlor trick where a dollar bill becomes a bow tie, but here’s a more sophisticated take on the ancient art form;

“Origami is the art of paper folding. The word is Japanese, literally meaning to fold (oru) paper (kami) and comes in many styles and varieties. Moneygami is origami made from currency; the subtle genius lies in the way the artist incorporates the prints on the dollar bills into the facial characteristics of the finished figures.” (via Fun Fever)

Moneygami relies on Attribute Dependency and Multiplication to generate different looks for esteemed historical figures.  The result is the most useful paper doll ever (not to mention paper money that’s literally convertible). We’d love to buy a round of drinks with this jaunty looking Alexander Hamilton.
