Dream-Dollars by Stephen Barnwell

“If you've ever known an acid freak who likes to spend hours
mumbling about the Illuminatus symbolism on the back of a dollar bill,
hand him a Dream Dollar sometime: he'll claw off his own face.”
WIRED Magazine

Community by Stephen Barnwell

"Barnwell succeeds in forcing viewers to consider
what the dollar says about the U.S."

Lauren Weinberg, Time Out Chicago

Indebted States of America by Stephen Barnwell

"Fed up with rising national debt, Stephen Barnwell decided to bail out America
last week .... Part tongue in cheek and part sounding bells to alert lawmakers
to what Barnwell believes is a perilous amount of debt, the dollars are part
of a growing movement of using art for activism."

Ambreen Ali,, July 21, 2010
