Week 10 – Artist Interview – Almira Nikravesh

This week’s art piece was is presented to us by Almira Nikravesh. In Nikravesh’s piece named Honest Abe/Time & Money, she uses pennies and puts them in a square shape. According to one of the art gallery’s curators, Nikravesh took around 20+ hours to place all the pennies in the shaped shown. The wow factor of this piece is the amount of pennies she used. I believe the curator said that the pennies are totaled to be worth about 1,000 dollars together. Time and Money is exactly what this piece is, it took a lot of time to put together and Nikravesh uses money as her art. I think this piece is really cool and i hope to see more of her artwork in the future.
