Currency Art: Taken From the Pockets of the Military

Sometimes life creates art inspiration in strange ways. For artist Chad Person, the inspiration for his humorously titled series TaxCut came in the form of a failing soldier in his digital photography class. Person relates on his website how, when he found out the soldier would have to repay his $400 course tuition grant to the military for his failure, the artist saw an opportunity to make sure the military couldn’t assign the funds elsewhere, like buying more weapons.
