Blockchain future states

HD Video - 2016 - 03:00 min An explanatory video oultining the promise of Blockchain, the technology behind the world’s best-known alternative crypto-currency Bitcoin. This video, a collaboration between the artist and a commercial firm specialized in information clips, connects the dream of a post-national, distributed network guaranteeing trust with older ambitions of classical economic liberalism. The Blockchain-based future looks very bright and could be just around the corner. Simon Denny (b. Auckland 1982) is an artist who lives and works in Berlin. In his work he explores power, politics and aesthetics. He unpacks the organizational structures that shape our lives, be they governmental, corporate, architectural, legal or rhetorical. Questioning how changes in technology alter our experience of the world, Denny’s work is as multi-layered and complex as the reality in which we now find ourselves.  courtesy the artist and Galerie Buchholz Berlin/Cologne/New York
