The Demi


dollar bills, posters, shredded money confetti, paper airplanes, business cards, powerpoint


The violence that the financial sector inflicts upon us - psychologically, physically, and financially - is derived from its supposed abstraction. It makes it difficult to see that what gives debt, what gives the lease, what gives the dollar its value is our buy-in. Credit relies on our faith in the promise that the dollar will be there tomorrow. The Demi pokes at the holes in this abstraction, empowering individuals to co-author a new relationship to value, while embracing the absurdity of the dollar. The Demi is a new kind of quantitative easing for the people, by the people.
