Watch The Most Patient Person in The World Reconstruct a Shredded Banknote


(via) In this strangely captivating timelapse, artist Martin John Callanan – armed with a set of tweezers (also the patience of a stone and the precision of a NASA engineer) – reconstructs a misprinted UK 5 pound note after it was shredded into thousands of tiny pieces as per protocol by the Bank of England.

The timelapse is made all the more mesmerizing by the most bizarre of soundtracks. Press play and…er…trip. For a look at what the banknote looks like when complete, click here. And if you actually possess the banknote and a record player, you’re probably going to want to try this out.
