This dollar bill is made for an installation at Strange Loop Gallery, NYC.
It depicts a dollar bill with a slight modification, letting you know that 'You are not the only one'.
it was made with two thoughts in mind: comfort. Imagining that every time you touch a dollar bill, you would read these words of comfort. Almost like the small messages on Yogi tea bags, but far more effective since everyone deals with one dollar bills all the time.
The other meaning is that of someone form outside the United States, talking to America as it were a person. Reminding that person that there are more people on this planet than just you.
All additional meanings: happy to hear of them!
