I’m an artist and designer. My work is heavily informed by my experience in security document design – the designing and printing of banknotes.
As an artist, I use the language of banknote design to express my ideas, which are at times pataphysical, alchemical, spiritual, global, humanitarian, or are specifically concerned with a future vision. As a designer, I’ve collaborated on banknote projects for both national and alternative currencies.
Money is a reflection of Humanity’s vision of itself. My design methodology, my fascination with money, and the potential for self-expression to be truly decentralized all converge on the blockchain. The story of cryptocurrency is the story of a redefining of Humanity’s self-perception and desire for novelty, borne out of necessity.
I collaborate on blockchain projects but also make ‘collectable’ pieces, registered and transacted on the blockchain.
