Do you have extra money laying around that you don't know what to do with...??? 
If so, then maybe artist Robert Wechsler and his geometric forms of interlocking coins may be an inspiring weekend project for you.

Whether electronic or material, we all use currency on a daily basis. Through his work, Wechsler invites us to look at the hightly valued metal and paper forms with a different perspective. From fresh, shiny, and new, to aged and completely worn, Wechler uses not just US currency, but also coins from places including China, Belize, and Hong Kong. He carefully cuts notches into each coin and manually joins them together to create fascinating variety of shapes and patterns.
