Prvacki’s work and interventions are meant to transform the viewer’s perception and experience of daily life and routine, providing solutions to daily problems, social anxieties and the comedic potential of such fears.  This video is based on a performance in which the artist personally cleaned visitors’ money one bill at a time creating bills "fresh enough to use as a face wipe." With her elegantly designed cleaning cart and beauty-product-ready wet wipes, the installation cleverly prodded at the sanitized intersection of wealth and beauty while also alluding to the maneuvering of the money market.
