The public installation consisted of 250,000 Euro cent coins, the surface area of 300 square meters in Amsterdam were distributed on one.

A work of art from coins, made by Sagmeister Inc. in September 2008 during the Droog Event 2: Urban Play.

The artwork, however, was swept up by the police the next day.

It seems that the Amsterdam police were called by a resident of one of the overlooking buildings early Sunday morning to report that someone was “stealing an artwork”. As the story goes, people were pocketing a few of the coins, which was also expected, but things got a bit out of hand when a resident saw this happening. So the police responded, and, in a rather bizarre instance of police efficiency, they proceeded to “secure” the artwork, by sweeping up the entire installation.
