Sometime ago, I made some tools from chopped coins.
Recently, while browsing the web, I came across a page where I'd been featured. I could vaguely remember getting an e-mail months back from someone asking me if it would be okay to use my images, but I'd never actually seen the article.When I clicked it I couldn't believe my eyes. Another artist had made some work strikingly similar to my own.
Was I intimidated? Did I feel threatened? No. Our approaches are completely different. If anything, I was impressed.It's good to be part of a large, broad movement, whose existence in America is only possible within this particular era. Her name is Stacey Lee Webber, she's a jewelry maker by trade, and she even went so far as to obtain a document from the US Mint assuring her she could mess with money.
So I guess that throws a wrench into my plan to get arrested for chopping up coins and finally get the media to cover my art. That's how I'd planned to get famous.
