The Flood

Installation: three-channel video, digital prints, objects, 2018

The Flood is on the one hand research about the crypto-currency, its mining and energy needs, on the other abstraction based on its forms, concepts and ideas. The work resonates between documentary style of images and simulated 3D objects in environment. Although the cryptocurrency is something immaterial as a part of the code, it needs powerful material infrastructure to exist – video cards and specialized devices to crypt and decrypt the transactions and keep the network running; huge amounts of often carbon based energy to keep these machines working; rare earth minerals to create the devices and so on.
