Dan Tague: Artist folds dollar bills to make money talk

26 August 2013 Last updated at 00:23 BST

Dan Tague may not be the first artist to point out the central role money plays in American politics and culture, but few have used the currency itself to illustrate their argument so effectively.

After his studio was ruined by the flooding which devastated New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina in 2005, Tague had a lot of time on his hands.

He used that time and those hands to start folding dollar bills - and in doing so came across a new way of both expressing his frustration and making a political statement.
