The Human Face of Cryptoeconomies steps beyond dry, incomprehensible analysis of finance structures and data control to present artworks that reveal how we might produce, exchange and value things differently together in the age of the blockchain.
25 April - 21 June 2015, Open Friday to Sunday 11-5pm
The interface is the boundary across which information is exchanged, causing a transformation in one or both sides of that boundary. The artists in this exhibition, critical practitioners in art and technology, lift the veil on contemporary interfaces; setting out alternative routes, aesthetic visions and disruptive behaviours.
The exhibition introduces a new work and slit-scanner hack workshops by Nathaniel Stern to be created as part of a residency.
