AFP: Billion Euro House [3 Feb 2012]


Frank Buckley is an unemployed Irish artist who’s become famous for living in a Billion-Euro apartment – literally. The interior of the house is made up of 1.4 billion Euros worth of decommissioned Euro notes from the Irish mint; the walls are made of blocks of old money, and the furniture and appliances are sprayed with shredded notes. Buckley says his work-in-progress is about “creating debate”. He still plans to build a kitchen and bedroom, complete with a mattress stuffed entirely with shredded notes.
