The artwork entitled “Ephemeral Thoughts on Digital Wallets” explores the value of digital assets, questioning whether this value persists once its environment ceases to exist. The blockchain ecosystem can be seen as a network of hope. When people believe in the system, they keep maintaining the blockchain. Once people lose their trust, they will start to unplug their computers and challenge the newly defined assets and values.
This animation is the visual continuation of my “Cloud Seed Phrase Visualization” project: https://ostachowski.com/cloud-seed-phrase-words-visualization/. In this project, I visualize the 2,048 hexadecimal seed phrase words of the BIP39 (Bitcoin Improvement Protocol) as ellipses generatively. Combinations of seed phrase words form the passwords of digital wallets that hold both cryptocurrencies and a wide variety of digital assets including crypto art.
