Banknote embroidery as political art – in pictures | Life and style

American artist Stacey Lee Webber has embroidered money for more than a decade. She started as a way to question the value of work by meticulously stitching patterns on to worthless one dollar bills. The latest incarnation – the Insurrection Bills – is a response to the US’s febrile political climate.

Webber, a trained metalsmith who lives and works in an old industrial building in Philadelphia , doesn’t feel the end of the Trump era has changed much. “The political situation in the US is not peaceful. The country is completely divided politically.”
