A piece derived from our notions of value or importance. A crisp, clean 50 euro note is systematically ‘erased’ by a soft lead graphite pencil. Anger and intensity as well as care and attention are present in the actions of the pencil as it moves intently across the note. In the end this valued piece of paper becomes something original and new.

Something of value or just a worthless bit of paper?
