Awesome Giant Coin Mural [time-lapse]

“Obsessions Make My Life Worse and My Work Better.” Agreed.

Apparently, this installation took place in Amsterdam in 2008, but I’m just finding out about it now. Incredible, no? 250.000 euro coins went into it. The time-lapse video is pretty impressive, and if you’d like to know more, the whole project was documented pretty well: Flickr

Over the course of 8 days, and with the help of over 100 volunteers, the coins were sorted into 4 different shades and carefully placed over a 300 sqm area. After completion the coins were left free and unguarded for the public to interact with.
