钱不仅仅是货币,也是我们最常见的艺术作品。它代表着我们的历史、文化和神话。
因此,它不仅表现为我们文明世界的物质支柱,辩证的来讲,它是随着文明的发展逐渐构成的。如果是这样的话,我们的物质世界不仅从非常物质的金钱中反应出来,物质世界自身也或多或少反映出文明世界。钱是持久的,或许永恒,或许不是?运动设计师Christian Stangl 想要通过化学材料加速各种钱的自然衰变速度,以检验材质的耐久性。奇怪的是,在这些化学过程中,那些在我们不可预见的生活中最终消失的是我们社会中的物质符号。

Money is not just currency. It is the most common piece of artwork.
It represents our history, culture and mythology.

Thus, it does not only appear as the material backbone of our civilization - it´s dialectic is that it constitutes and is being constituted by the way our civilization proceeds. If this is the case, our materialism is not only reflected by the very material that money is, the material itself reflects the very state our civilization is in. Money is durable, maybe timeless. Or is it not?

Motion designer Christian Stangl wants to contest the apparent durability by speeding up the natural decay of the material by using various acids. Strangely these chemical processes, that ultimately result in total disaggregation bring unforeseen life to the material symbolization of our society. This music video of Strange Freedom´s Track „Hide“ was made of thousands of single microscopic photographies, merged together, creating a dramatic timelapse scenario.
