Speculative: Futures, Origins, and Everyday Staples

I’ve been working away on a new show that opened last week, Speculative: Futures, Origins, and Everyday Staples. The show is a series of generative soundscapes, visuals, performances, and reports about the origins and future of the peer-to-peer cryptocurrency Bitcoin. The works explore the feasibility of Bitcoin as a daily currency, the long term future of the currency, its impact on monetary exchanges, nation states, and food staples. A number of other artists are contributing as performers, writers (traditional/coding), and sound artists. These include Sam Bruce, Sean Buckelew, Robert Dansby, and Kerstin Hovland, Jason Kunke, and others. If you want to come and check out the show info is below.
