With the Billion Euro House, an Irish Artist Protests While Recycling

by Liz Dwyer

February 2, 2012

What happens to money after it's too old and worn to be in circulation? Most banks around the globe shred the cash, recycle it, or sell it as a novelty item. Irish artist Frank Buckley managed to both recycle and create a one-of-a-kind protest against the global economic crisis after he turned $1.4 billion Euros—about $1.8 billion U.S. dollars—into a house.
