Hidden Messages on Dollar Bills by Dan Tague

We’ve already seen artists using money to create Cool Dollar Bill Origami, and you’ve probably already noticed that lately there has been an increase in innovative currency-related works of art. It may be due to the decreasing value of the dollar, but most probably it’s because there’s something magic about money – it’s the power to buy things, feed the starving ones, and even cause wars.

This time, we want to show you another creative idea to use your bills – it’s similar to origami art, but with a little twist. New Orleans-based artist Dan Tague folds a dollar bill as many as 100 times, until it spells out an unexpected phrase, including “We Need A Revolution” and “Trust No One.” He photographs the finished origami ideas on a black background and prints the photos in a large format (large enough that the Treasury Department can’t accuse him of counterfeiting). The themes in Tague’s unique art are protest, American history, and, of course, money. [1]

Dan Taque's art reminds me of conspiracy nut talk. Distort any thing into saying what you want.
