Greed eats TRUST: An experimental arrangement in public space 

The experiment started on July 17 at 12:00 in front of
St. Catherine's Church in Frankfurt. (Germany)

"Greed devours" - an experimental arrangement for the society in public space.

The word "TRUST" (VERTRAUEN) is written with the thousands of one-cent coins - as social sculpture uncommented and unprotected in public space in front of the St. Catherine's Church on Frankfurts shopping street Zeil from 17 to 31 July 2014. Each letter of the word is about one meter deep and about half a meter wide. The fate of the money-Sculpture will be documented via video and still images.

We live in a culture in which we hide money instead of showing it. It belongs to the most intimate regions of privacy. How will people react when they see money in public space, unprotected, easy to grab? The money, however, is placed in a contradictory context. Ralf Kopp's installation "Greed devours: TRUST"
