Glitching Juno Moneta In Black
Edition 2 of 5 Juno Moneta was the presiding deity for the fort where the ancient Roman empire minted its money, the origin of the words money and minting, she is literally the Goddess of money. Using contemporary digital plasticity and glitch, this sculpture ushers in the new global structure of the decentralized blockchain and its disruption of existing artistic, economic, and sociopolitical orthodoxies. Each spin reveals gold veining in the middle to suggest mining. Set against black, this transformation reveals detailed and complex new patterns emerging from the rounded and spherized volume suggestive of our planet.
