Diddo Velema has created The Cure for Greed
The ink was literally used on dollar bills, Diddo having chopped a whopping $10,000 worth of US currency to turn them into pulp and then, through the use of different chemical separation procedures, he extracted the pigment from the money. The ink was re-stabilized into liquid state and then poured into genuine medical vials.
According to Diddo’s own words, the project represents “an invitation to reexamine our assumptions and inject them with the type of energy that will ensure new and evolving perspectives”. The set costs $10,000 and comes packaged in a custom-made, personally monogrammed mahogany box. It’s quite a cool idea, this.
