The Second Invention of Fiat Money

Art Project

            This project explores what could happen to money and its design, in the future. If we imagine that, in a year like 2079, all digital aspects of our world has taken over, physical money has eventually disappeared.
            However, with every movement of progress, come groups of reactionary people who fight against it. Isolationist protesters gather around more ancient ways of living as a form of protest, and re-invent  physical currency. 

            Just like today’s currency features famous monuments or people as a geographical marker, in the fully globalised future, notes feature part of the human body to emphasize biology over digital.
