make your franklin‘ by french creatives vincent desdoigts, martin joubert, and etienne lecorre
is a community art project that invites the recreation of the 100 USD banknote. ranging from
identity manipulation to complete redesign of the monetary layout, the project is a ‘cultural reflexion’
that, as a whole, provides a snap shot of our cultural climate. the submitted designs come from
all around the world, and reformats the symbol of modern society into a relevant and often
iconic medium of communication.
