Glitching Juno Moneta In Blue
Edition 1 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 empire 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 royal blue, this transformation uses large and small spiked glitches, exploring the scalar relationship between small and big powers.
