私人货币ZR.png

​​私人货币:ZR

Private Currency: ZR

2020

艺术家发行了以个人网络代号“ZR”为名称的加密货币,并承诺在一年后原价回购,这是信用创造的过程。

 

ZR发行之后,可以在市场上自由流通。

 

货币,代币。艺术家希望这是传统货币概念下的价值呈现,形式为网络代币,通过流转交易的结果,通过信用和赎回的手段,确认发行者和购买者的协约关系,从而构成发行、质押、契约关系下的循环。

 

ZR作为艺术家身份的代理,成为网络虚拟匿名身份的具体化,也是真实世界中艺术家在网络世界的真身。

 

基于以太坊的代币发行,对价值和唯一性的探索,在社会学维度下的扩张,都可以被看作其艺术逻辑思维的综合体。

The artist issues a cryptocurrency under the personal codename "ZR" and promises to buy it back after one year at its original price, as a credit creation process.

 

Once issued, ZR can be freely circulated on the market.

 

Currency, tokens. The artist wants this to be a presentation of value under the traditional concept of money, in the form of an online token, which, as a result of the circulation of transactions, confirms the contractual relationship between the issuer and the purchaser through the means of credit and redemption, thus constituting a cycle of issuance, pledge and contractual relationship.

 

The ZR acts as a proxy for the identity of the artist, becoming a materialization of the virtual anonymous identity of the web, and the real body of the real world artist in the online world.

 

The token issuance based on the Ethereum, the exploration of value and uniqueness, the expansion under the sociological dimension, can all be seen as a synthesis of its artistic logical thinking.

​​小目标

SMALL GOAL

2020

「小目标」(英文缩写:SG)旨在反映金融市场中价格与市值之间的关系。

艺术家通过在去中心化交易所Uniswap 中成交「小目标」,让SG这个数字货币拥有价格,初期艺术家设置的价格为1元一枚,在收到1亿个SG货币的用户的钱包中就显示了1个亿的资产数额,当这些用户“动”这一个亿的时候,这一个亿会立即归零。

 

艺术家对ERC20 合约的转账功能进行了改造,加入了一个开关。当限制转账开启时,持币者的任何转账操作,均会将其SG代币全部销毁。同时艺术家限制了其代理合约转账的功能,当开关开启时,合约转账功能将会失效,从而锁定交易价格,艺术家随后通过Uniswap 建立起SG与以太坊交易对,并完成第一笔交易,将其价格设定为1ETH = 1000SG,然后向加密社区空投。因为有了市场定价1ETH = 1000SG,一亿枚SG市值就是10万ETH。那么当用户打开钱包,就会看到自己资产增加了10万ETH等值金额(超过1 亿RMB),从而达到一个“小目标”。有趣的是,交易对创建后,有一个uniswap 机器人立即购入了资金池内大比例的SG,将其价格拉升至3.89 美元/枚。

"NFT现在比较流行,如果区块链艺术,止于图像,那么NFT是图像形式的体现。如果区块链技术是一个动态的,在线上运作的事件和编程推动的艺术形式,就是刘嘉颖在做的。"

"NFT is more popular right now, and if blockchain art, stops at images, then NFT is the embodiment of the image form. If blockchain technology is a dynamic, online operating event and programming-driven art form, that's what Liu Jiaying is doing."

Small Goal  (abbreviation: SG) aims to reflect the relationship between price and market value in financial markets.

The artist has set a price of 1Yuan for the digital currency SG by trading “Small Goal’" on the decentralized exchange called Uniswap, which initially shows 100 million assets in the wallets of users who have received 100 million SGs. When these users take any action on the 100 million, the 100 million will immediately go to zero.

 

The artist has modified the transfer function of the ERC20 contract by adding a switch. When the transfer restriction is on, any transfer by the holder will result in the destruction of all of their SG tokens. At the same time the artist restricts the transfer function of his proxy contract so that when the switch is on, the contract transfer function will be disabled, thus locking the transaction price.

 

The artist then establishes an SG-Ethereum transaction pair via Uniswap and completes the first transaction, setting its price to 1ETH = 1000SG, and then airdrops it to the crypto community.

 

With a market price of 1ETH = 1000SG, the market value of 100 million SGs is 100,000 ETH, so when a user opens their wallet, they will see that their assets have increased by the equivalent of 100,000 ETH (over 100 million RMB), thus reached a "small goal". Interestingly, after the pair was created, a Uniswap bot immediately purchased a large percentage of the SGs in the pool, pushing the price up to $3.89 per coin.

2020

2020年3月,特朗普政府采取直升机撒钱模式来应对疫情带来的影响,1000 Dollars在这个背景下被创作出来,这是一个标注1000美金图像、符号的数字货币,作品在展中,以直升机三维模型的形式撒“钱”,观众通过扫码来获得这件「1000 Dollars」的非同质化代币(NFT)作品。

In March 2020, the Trump government responded to the impact of the epidemic by scattering money by helicopter.

 

The work is presented in the exhibition as a 3D model of a helicopter spreading 'money', with visitors scanning the code to obtain this “1000 Dollars” non-fungible token (NFT) work.

"最早的加密艺术,其创造者应该包括中本聪等人的理念。基于这一理念运作的图像包括NFT。"

"Early crypto-art whose creators would have included the ideas of Satoshi Nakamoto and others. Images that operate on this idea include NFT."

红与蓝

RED & BLUE

2019

2019年9月,艺术家通过以太坊发布100个由红到蓝的渐变色块,并进行长达一年的竞价拍卖。参与者可以拍下自己喜欢的色块,在未告知色块含义的情况下,而是在一年后,观察这些色块呈现出的价值分布。地缘文化、知识,经济活动,之间的必然与想象力的联系,基于时间的交易运作,是否能为这个项目的初始意图,带来更大的社群参与维度的意义?

 

在2020年10月18日,晚上10点,红与蓝结束了长达一年的竞拍,藏家GeoffreyX在最后几分钟时,同时收藏了代表中美两国意识形态的红色和蓝色加密色块,并表示“我希望技术的进步和艺术的嬗变,可以再一次帮助人类社会重新凝聚。”

In September 2019, the artist releases 100 gradient colour blocks from red to blue through Ethereum and a year-long bidding auction. Participants can bid on the colour blocks they like, without being informed of the meaning of the blocks, and instead observe the distribution of the values presented by these blocks after one year. Could the inevitable and imaginative link between geo-culture, knowledge, economic activity, and the operation of time-based transactions bring a greater sense of community participation dimension to the initial intention of this project?

 

On 18 October 2020, at 10pm, the year-long bidding for Red and Blue ended, with collector Geoffrey X collecting both the red and blue encrypted blocks, representing Chinese and American ideologies, in the final minutes, stating "I hope that technological advances and artistic transmutations will once again help to reunite human society. "

一千眼

1000EYE

2020

「一千眼」是基于以太坊的加密艺术作品,以比特币缔造者中本聪(匿名个人或群体的代称)的眼睛为中心,按照数学中质数螺旋(Ulam spiral)排布的方式,由一千位二十一世纪代表人物的眼睛构成。

 

「一千眼」除大幅绘画作品外,还对应发行总计1000个非同质化代币(NFT)。作品中有21世纪最杰出的科学家、企业家、加密朋克、明星、意见领袖等。

 

「一千眼」实体为加密货币,在油画布上绘制的一千只眼睛,是作品在现实物理世界中的投射(虚体)。「一千眼」保存于以太坊公链,是可被所有人公开见证的作品,每个NFT眼睛都是作品的千分之一。在区块链中是独立存在的个体,同时又是艺术观念下的整体,每一个眼睛以去中心化特质的区块链形式,在世界中永存。

 

艺术家计划每十年增发一轮, 记录每个十年中在世界上产生影响的人们。

“1000Eye” is an ethereum-based crypto-art featuring the eyes of the creator of Bitcoin, Satoshi Nakamoto (a surrogate for anonymous individuals or groups), in a mathematical Ulam spiral arrangement of a thousand eyes of iconic figures of the 21st century.

 

In addition to the large paintings, the “1000Eye" also corresponds to the issuance of a total of 1,000 non-fungible tokens (NFT). The works include some of the most prominent scientists, entrepreneurs, crypto-punks, celebrities, opinion leaders, etc. of the 21st century.

 

The “1000Eye” entity is a cryptocurrency, with a thousand eyes painted on canvas as a projection (voxel) of the work in the real physical world. The “1000 Eye" is kept on the Ethereum public chain and is a work that can be publicly witnessed by all, each NFT eye being a thousandth of the work. Individuals that exist independently in the blockchain, but at the same time whole under the concept of art, each eye lives perpetually in the world in the form of a blockchain with decentralized qualities.

 

The artist plans to issue additional rounds every ten years, documenting the people who have made an impact in the world in each decade.

零美元 系列

ZERO DOLLAR series

2020

「零美元」是「掷地有声的钱」系列作品的一件作品。它不仅是一副图像,同时也是一个区块链以太坊上的非同质化代币(NFT)。

 

艺术家将符号化的“零美元”概念与加密货币绑定,在加密艺术品拍卖平台上,「零美元」获得了近3.6以太币(约合1300美元)的出价。

 

此作品探讨了加密货币赋予美元图像隐藏的溢价空间,同时对美元符号特征以及其资产基准的价值锚定,提出了疑问。

Zero Dollar is a piece in the ’Sound Money’ series. It is not only an image but also a non-fungible token (NFT) on the blockchain based Ethereum.

 

The artist tied the symbolic concept of 'zero dollar' to cryptocurrency, and 'Zero Dollar' garnered bids of nearly 3.6 Ether (approximately $1300) on the crypto art auction platform.

 

The work explores the hidden premium that cryptocurrencies give to images of the US dollar, while questioning the symbolic character of the dollar and the anchoring of the value of its asset benchmark.

Inspired by the Wall Street Journal's April 10, 2020 news, "Fed Announces New Program That Could Provide $2.3 Trillion in Loans."

 

The artist manipulated the Federal Reserve logo (2018) to generate a moving image. and posts its dynamic NFT on opensea. this work relates to the artist's idea of issuing money and continues to explore the constructed relationships of banking, contracts, and the functioning of society, wandering through the culture outlined by the image and its metaphors. In turn, the referenced logo dynamic NFT becomes a tangible object that can be traded for online distribution.
