About this event:
[23.1.2020] Trickle Down: A New Vertical Sovereignty, a tokenised four-screen video installation and generative soundscape attached to the blockchain, seeks to explore value systems and wealth disparity.
Composed of auction scenes, performances and choral interludes by different communities, the installation commences when a visitor drops a pound coin into a machine designed to expose the mechanisms needed to convert fiat currency into crypto-currency. Each member of the Trickle Down community who has helped the work come to fruition will receive a share of the ETH via a smart contract on the blockchain.
A series of public workshops around the project, alternative economies and the blockchain have been taking place at the Whitworth Art Gallery as part of Economics: the Blockbuster, an action research project and exhibition for late 2021/early 2022, in partnership with Alliance Manchester Business School.
