These are made entirely from money bills:
On show at the RGS (IBG) as part of the exhibition Creative Compass. Made form paper money from all over the world, stitched together. Based on the style of dress worn in the 1870′s by British Female Explorers, honouring their place and role in history.

These dresses made of paper maps and money are Susan Stockwell’s sculptural study on colonialism and the British empire. Empty life-sized female dress composed of ordinance survey maps glued together. Stockwell delivers a visual blow to English colonization and occupation of Scotland over 300 years. Using military maps to create a woman’s dress sends a double message of war and politics being dominated by men in Western history. If you enjoy this, you will probably like the ‘Maps Couture’ of Elisabeth Lecourt.
