Won Park is an non-traditional paper folder who makes origami creations from American dollar bills, and does so quite perfectly.
The nimble fingered artist is able to keep his origami works intricate in detail while keeping them cute and fun. He also designs origami scenes (as pictured above) from little dollar bills.
Won Park's work is pretty unusual but also irresistible in his execution.
Implications - Fresh perspectives on traditional art forms are popular for those wanting something different from their art. Origami is one of the oldest art practices in history and modern interpretations of the traditional paper art are popular among appreciators of tradition, history and art. The use of money specifically in the creation of these works speaks to the frivolous way in which money is treated by consumers who enjoy conspicuous consumption.
