David Knight - 16th Sept 2013

Richard Swarbrick has earned a reputation for turning football into art with his painterly animations of the likes of Messi and Rooney in full-flow. Now he's turned music into art, out of money...

The performance by no-nonsense garage rock outfit China Rat's cry of impoverishment N.O.M.O.N.E.Y has been completely recreated in a stop frame animation made from coins and bank notes.

It's ingenious, brilliantly executed, and mesmerizing... wonder how much it cost?
