Exchanghibition Collaboration 2012


I recently had the opportunity to meet with Dadara on his resent visit to Costa Rica. For those who may not know, I have been collaborating with Dadara overseas for some time now. So, it was really nice to meet in-person and talk for a bit.

The newest addition to Dadara’s “Exchanghibition Bank Project” is the “2012 Money/Art Note“. As I have already bonded all the previous “Money/Art Notes” it just felt right to complete the set and “bond” this note as well.

I always have fun bonding one of Dadara’s notes as there is never a shortage of inspiration. It seems that every time I bond one of these notes, I become inspired to try a new approach to my “Money Bonding” process.

This note was no exception. This is the first note I have ever bonded using sheets of glass instead of metal. I also decided to wire-wrap the assembly together, instead of using rivets or bezels as I have done in the past. I am really happy with the results and feel that this is a great addition to the rest of the notes.

I am also very excited to see how other peoples ideas for change will be manifested with the aid of this project. So far, there have been two very interesting and insightful ideas shared by “Daniel Pinchbeck“ and ”Ross Ashcroft“. And I can’t wait to read about other peoples ideas for change.

I am not sure if there will be any future Exchanghibition notes, but information will be posted about where they may be displayed in the future; as they are currently in Dadara’s possession to use in conjunction with the Exchanghibition Bank project.

Until next time.
Peace and Love
