According to the Smashing Pumpkins, the world is a vampire. I hope you all understand exactly what that means. (I don'tb but I like the sound of it.) Value is subjective. Vampires value blood and black capes. Crypto-folk value bits and bytes and all things digital. I am an artist inspired by Existentialism, Ray Johnson's Pop-Art, and the song "Nothing" by Depeche Mode, so I value NOTHINGNESS...
So I'm making (and printing---for real world distribution) paper tender in the amounts of .33333 of nothing. The unique piece of digital art being offered to YOU, right here-right now, (there will only be ONE---there can BE only one---I think I hear Queen playing in the background) is a composite piece made by my having super-imposed the "fronts" of my tender notes onto the back pattern that I created so that the notes aren't just blank when you flip them over. (I want the nothingness to be symbolic, not literal by having by nothing on the back.) Think of it as an upside-down airplane on a sheet of stamps, if you like! (An intentional mistake!)
For one lucky human, this tokenized bit of digital tender(ness) will make you a more complete human (or A.I. or alien or, perhaps, goblin---if goblins are finally online) than any other human (or A.I. or alien or goblin) on the planet! It will help you achieve endarkenment, which is something I just thought of, but which sounds like it should already be a thing... (I looked it up. It IS already a thing that a lot of new agers have written about. Foiled again!!!)
Anyway---Congratulations on your purchase! I'm sure you'll be very happy together!
Meanwhile, I'll use the funds RAISED by the sale of this unique item to pay for (a small portion of) a yacht, in which my family and I will escape to the Bermuda Triangle and live with the other underwater alien intelligences that inhabit that area---and we'll occasionally have rave parties on our boat---because I like techno! Thanks for contributing to the dream!!!
