While in the States it is understood that we sometimes refer to money simply as green, international currency can be found in plenty of other colors. Canadian visual artist Kristi Malakoff's series titled Money Pieces utilizes the spectrum of hues that is present in paper money from around the world to produce her eye-catching sculptures. By folding, cutting, and pasting, Malakoff manages to create colorful sculptural pieces.
可能对美国人来说，纸币的外观感觉就是简单的绿色，实际上，世界各国的货币可谓五颜六色。加拿大视觉艺术家Kristi Malakoff名为“钱之皮”（Money Pieces ）的系列作品，使用了大量世界各国不同颜色的纸币，通过折叠，剪裁，黏贴等手段成就了这些引人注目，色彩缤纷的作品。从美元到土耳其里拉，艺术家用了大量纸币来装配她复杂的作品。在她一丝不苟的努力下，诞生了漂亮多彩的纸花，立体的模型，3D化的多边形等艺术作品。许多作品的灵感来自于花或者几何图形。
From the American dollar to the Turkish lira, the artist manipulates numerous copies of each to assemble her intricate works. The result of her meticulous efforts are beautifully multicolored renditions of flowers, diorama-like scenes, and three-dimensional polygons. Many of her works appear to be heavily inspired by floral arrangements and geometric shapes.
