She refers to this installation as a ‘community project,’ where she employed under-privileged women and turned the Garden into a place of exchange–a place to give (by donating the bank notes or by buying the installation itself) and take (the underprivileged women receiving income). The bills, disguised as flowers, represent the monetary upside that allow our lifestyle today. Yet as we look up to the ceiling and awed by the beauty and intimacy of the flowers, we are reminded that earthly treasures are pointless if we do not enjoy them and be thankful to God–the ‘force’ that gives us our results.
