This artwork is a metaphor for the overwhelming influence that money has on our lives. The act of pressing the dollar sign into powder symbolizes the sheer force that money wields in our daily existence, positive and negative, affecting everything from our sense of self-worth to our ability to meet basic needs. Nourine’s use of this metaphor creates a thought-provoking and engaging image that emphasizes the magnitude of money’s influence in our daily lives.

In this artwork, Nourine incorporates the “mountain and valley” illusion to generate varying perceptions among viewers. Some will see the Dollar symbol as engraved into the surface, while others will view it as popping out. This visual effect adds a controversial element to the artwork as it prompts different interpretations and perspectives from each individual viewer.
