2009 Corpse, Bitcoin Mining 2009

About the piece

The work consists of a motion capture sock-puppet floating in front of a screen recording taken from the artist’s hard drive from 2009 - 2011. The recording shows parts of the original Bitcoin client first launched for mining crypto currency by Satoshi Nakamoto. The virtual sock puppet performed by the artist’s hand floating above, refers to sock-puppet accounts - a tactic first used in military state interventions where a fake virtual persona is created in order to exercise influence.
