In an effort to direct address issues surrounding debt and transparency in transactions, US-based artist Jill Sylvia has created structural replicas of the most significant American building using cut-out ledger paper. The designs have been created as a means to explore the society’s serial structure, financial architecture and the capital.
Each of the work has been created by meticulously cutting out the spaces within the lines of each of the cells in the ledger paper. The results look like the structural skeletons of the most famous American building including the New York stock exchange, The White House and the US Treasury. The designer states that the process used to create these structures was a way to understand the need to quantify our transactions.
