Bitcoin Artwork: Bridging the Gap Between Art and Technology

Andy Bauch is a fine artist using cryptocurrency as material, generating his artwork using bitcoins and then physically producing them with LEGO brick “pixels". His dynamic artworks beckon viewers to question the ever-magnifying pull of the digital world on the physical. Inspired from studying digital video compression techniques, Bauch selected LEGO bricks, an eye-catching and familiar childhood hallmark, as his medium of choice to echo the pixelated nature of digitization. He utilizes computer algorithms and software assistance to create his mosaics, work that reflects the physical manifestation of the abstract threat of technological singularity.
