London-based designer Ilona Gayno came up with this incredible idea for a Kickstarter funded conceptual art project: meticulously plan a bank heist. A crew of ragtag criminals won't be joining her and she won't actually be robbing a bank---but she'll share all the plotting and planning with backers (or in this case---accomplices) leading up to the exhibition and publication of the book. Gayno worked with struntmen, criminal attorneys, and escape artists to get this thing off the ground and the final art exhibition will feature short films, large scale model reconstruction, sculptures, and a photographic prints.
