  Newsday.com: Williams College artist spreads message, one dollar at a time

Newsday.com: Williams College artist spreads message, one dollar at a time. Peggy Diggs, a "public artist" and faculty member at Williams College writes messages on currency that passes through her hands. The messages say such things as, Do you feel the need to be paid for everything you do?" and "What is satisfied in you by buying things?"

"It's kind of like graffiti, but in a small, private way," she said in the article by AP writer Michael Kunzelman. "I just love that there are people out there I've never met who are thinking about ways money has hurt them."

Other projects have included interviewing maximum security prisoners to find about ways of designing things for people who live in cramped spaces. Read the entire article at the link above.
