is a follow-up essay on Sonderbare Gelder and the visual aesthetics of crypto currencies. On one side visual identity and the social practice of aesthetic judgment appear to be a necessary response to unsresolved problems of trust, on the other side it seems to be exactly the aesthetic appearance that is sparking doubts about economic functionality.
The text has been published in the September 2022 issue of form Design Magazine.

The visual design is based on sensor values contained in each data packet stored in a smart contract during the minting process. The smart contract code maps the values into a data visualization, rendering a unique gradient that forms a visual record of the plant’s environment at the time when the NFT was minted.

The work is accompanied by a digital publication picking up RPG sourcebook aesthetics. It is including texts by Wassim Alsindi, Amy Ireland, Kei Kreutler, Nascent, and an interview with Anna Greenspan and can be downloaded at Plaza Protocol.
is a thesis investigating the interrelation of (cypto) currencies and visual communication. Whereas classical currencies are structured and designed following an ideal of the common, the visual design of crypto currencies oscillates between requirements of the general like functionality and reliability and qualities of uniqueness being for example identity offers and aesthetic experience.
Formally the thesis picks up this antagonism, it processes influences of both user and internet cultures and eventually aims at translating digital aesthetics into printed matter.
Part of the project is the ongoing development of a digital archive and daily updates on Coin Repository.

is Documnt’s second issue of “concrete poetry” and conceptual writing, with an unstable focus on changes in the materiality and temporality of archives, especially those pushed by digitalization.
The layout reflects the aesthetics of contemporary archives—lists and accumulation of files, user interfaces, glitches and missing links. Furthermore it makes its own design process a subject of discussion and displays it openly.

Archive, publishing collective and mixtape series, Documnt is exploring the intersections of (hyper)text, image and sound as they relate to the posthuman body/environment, with a particular focus on the latest possibilities of documentation, code, memory, analog-digital interaction, poetics/politics, experimental poetry and music, repetition, collectivism and sound sculpture explored politically.
