A DUBLIN-BASED artist says he hopes to encourage dialogue on the meaning of money, currency and the financial system by covering a house with €1.4 billion in decommissioned and shredded banknotes.

Frank Buckley says each ‘brick’ used in the installation in Dublin’s Smithfield is made up of shredded notes that once would have represented about €50,000.
