Occupy George at Ars Electronica CyberArts12- 09.01.12

occupygeorge1.jpg OccupyGeorge - “Money talks, but not loud enough for the 99%. By circulating dollar bills stamped with fact-based infographics, Occupy George informs the public of America’s daunting economic disparity one bill at a time. Because money knowledge is power.” Occupy George by Ivan Cash and Andy Dao got a lot of press when they created stamped dollar bills to circulate during the Occupy movements ~ they also received an Honorary Mention in Interactive Arts at Prix Ars Electronica 2012 and are on display at the OK CyberArts12 exhibition! This means they have huge prints of the stamped bills lining a hall way and a frame with 1$ bills stamped, along with a stamping station where you can stamp your own bills! So naturally shawn and i stamped through the US cash he had for fun… stamped some infographics on my arm… and Golan Levin happen to have a crisp 2$ bill in his wallet that ended up being perfect for the wealth stats stamp! Take a peek at the fun on the next page!

5 Notes

Great stuff, I came up with some similar concepts recently and stumbled into this, you pretty much hit the nail on the head with one of my more recent concepts for an art exhibition. Weird how creativity works. Great effort!

I do like the Picture/message overlap of the 2 dollar bill. Very thought provocking.

Well, that is a really smart and cool idea. As for the legality, I found myself wondering about that, but then it occurred to me that they aren’t arresting the little kids at the zoo for impressing elephant pictures on pennies with those crank machines. Fair is fair, right? Hm… Fair… A girl can dream, anyway.

isn’t that illegal?

I enjoyed seeing these dollar bills and I think they are a very clever and creative way to get the message out.

I wish I had received one of these in a money transaction. Will they be circulating or has the government taken them out?
