Mel Chin “Safehouse”

Safehouse served as a Fundred gathering and drawing space and Operation Paydirt Headquarters in New Orleans from October 2008 through January 2010. Safehouse is a former residential dwelling that had its front façade sculpturally transformed into an operable 10-foot diameter bank-vault door, complete with a rotary combination lock. Inside, the four walls of Safehouse were covered with a brilliant display of thousands of Fundreds, with additional bills housed in a custom Fundred vitrine.
