Noe Gaytan’s idea was so startling to me because i had never heard of such a thing. His art work was printed money to represent the student debt that he has. He said that in order to pay back his 50,000 dollar loan he was going to print the money and earn his income. I thought that was bizarre but then i realized art has no limits and niether does making money.
He also stated that a pun played an important roll in his art project. The pun is “making green” using yellow and blue ink for his printed money. this surprised me because i didn’t catch this and if he would have not told me i would probably have never noticed.
Noe gaytans message was raising awareness that student debt is growing in the US. Im looking forward to this semester already with all the fantastic art.
