In September Sagmeister was invited to participate in Droog Event 2: Urban Play. The public art installation consisted of 250.000 euro cents placed on the floor, covering more than 300sqm on a square in Amsterdam. The design was created using four different shades of pennies.
A few days ago the police removed every coins in order to protect the artwork.
Sagmeister in its purest form. Somehow this event resonates rather admirably within other current monetary events..
