following in our tradition of publishing money-based art, we bring you ‘currency rings’ by bath student sophie kemp.

currencies from around the world are instantly transformed into wearable pieces of art through a series of simple origami folds. altering both the perception and value of the dollar bill, the design aims to inject interest and experience into a common, everyday interaction. abstract and graphic in their appearance, the rings – an object with established emotional connotations – are characterized by the unique prints and colors of each bill, which stem from 12 different countries.
