This functional sculpture seeks to provoke a deep thought on the viewer about the volatility of money. “An euro bill by itself is a mere tinted paper representing a figure; 20, 50, 100 and has no more value than the time invested to get it. We just seek to exchange it for a desired object or experience” Out of this meditation we created our unique project “Too much?”. A piece of art transformed into an original dining table made of a glass cube containing partially burnt 50 €uro bills and with a thin biofuel flame rising above its surface. Where the artist reproduced meticulously banknotes from paper using a hyper-realistic technique, and simulated the effect of the burning fire sculpting and petrifying ashes with resin. Amarist Active in contemporary Art and Design. The studio focuses on the creation of functional pieces capable of stimulating the thoughts of the viewer through works that invite to reflect on the world around us. Amarist Studio’s work explores the impact that humanity generates in the world in its continuous evolution. A process that involves observing the imbalances and the gaps that occur in the different cultural assemblages Declaration of the artist The Amarist Studio work within a framework of reflexion and development of pieces critic with today’s international social, cultural and economic conflicts. A series of everyday objects and preconceived symbols of rejection are transformed into functional sculptures to stimulate consciousness.
