Isaac Gertman : The Sky's the (Federal) Limit : Dollar ReDe$ign

“The organizing principal of my design is the Federal Reserve. The bill is broken into 12 vertical sections which represent the 12 cities that house a Federal Reserve bank. I then took typical skyline shots of each city, and then lined them up horizontally to make up a composite skyline. The daytime skyline is on the recto side, and a nighttime skyline is on the verso. The security mark on each bill is a GIS map of the city grid. The bill size matches the 100 Euro bill, and is marked ‘100 USD’ because the value of the US Dollar is so inextricably linked to international finance markets.”
