Unemployed artist uses remaining cash as medium for economic statement



    TORONTO, April 21 /CNW/ - A casualty of the 2008 economic crisis,
unemployed conceptual artist Brian Rushton Phillips, has used his remaining
cash as a medium to comment on the downturn and his own financial uncertainty.
    Entitled 'Financial Security (Blanket)', the project incorporates 208
American dollar bills, sewn together with thread, to form a makeshift security
blanket.
    The fragility of the blanket conjures an oxymoronic image, consistent
with the current state of global unemployment, homelessness and financial
insecurity.
    The work has been pre-released online:
