Description

The artwork

Mosaic Virus

Video, 2019

Drawing historical parallels from “tulip-mania” that swept across The Netherlands and Europe in the 1630s to the speculation currently ongoing around crypto-currencies, Mosaic Virus work is generated by an artificial intelligence (AI).

It shows a tulip blooming, an updated version of a Dutch still life for the 21st century. The appearance of the tulip is controlled by bitcoin prices. “Mosaic” is the name of the virus causing the stripes in a petal which increased their desirability and helped cause speculations over prices. In this piece, the stripes depend on the value of bitcoin, changing over time to show how the market fluctuates.
