"Here, Abosch explores commodifiable value in everyday objects as well as human beings while staging public interventions in many of the World's banking centers. By making the private key to a blockchain wallet public and declaring it a “bank” open to anyone with the technological means to access it, the artist creates a complication that speaks to issues around public engagement in trust-systems.
As technology presents a threat to traditional power-structures, Abosch considers the need to mitigate the human threat of corruption against our value-system." By Kevin Abosch.
