Having used creativity as a way through tough times, Jim Wheat shares his path to art and reflects on the "dream lifestyle"

In the early 90s, Jim Wheat started on what he thought was his lifelong career path as he began a degree in civil engineering. As part of his master’s degree, Jim jumped at the chance to undergo a yearlong placement in the USA, kickstarting his love of travel and exploration.

After the 2008 financial crash, Jim needed a new direction. He founded Dollarsandart, a creative outlet that allowed him to express his own experiences. But the project’s role was also much larger, as Jim aimed to highlight the complexity and curious value we assign to objects, materials, and cultural symbols such as the U.S. dollar and sand, arguably two of the most iconic symbols of the Middle Eastern “dream lifestyle”. 

As Jim explains, “The universal symbol of the $ seemed to impact and influence so many decisions, providing the motivation for and the limitation of many of our decisions in life. I decided that the dollar, for all its pros and cons, along with grains of sand in nature and in industry, would be a central feature of my work as Dollarsandart was born.”
