Paper money

Paper money symbolises the cycle of spending, disposing and replacing. The work is made of paper and looks like an old, much-loved item. It's a reminder that we now rarely keep clothing or accessories. As soon as the fashion changes, we dispose of the old and purchase the new. Paper is also still disposed of in huge amounts, making this 'paper bag' disposable in more ways than one.
