The GENESIS BLOCK is usually the very first block of a blockchain. However, the MACHFELD GENESIS BLOCK consists of a material and an immaterial part that can only be seen as one unit.
The material part:
In the starting phase, 4 objects are designed. These are in the form of 4 parts of a block and are modular expandable in a row. The material part is a reference to the immaterial part that settles in the institution or its system.
The immaterial part:
The immaterial part is a MASTERNODE of the KONJUNGATE network. It is a computer program that is implemented in a system to generate the crypto currency KONJUNGATE through the MASTERNODE in an energy-saving way.
Thus, the artwork itself is an art funding program that is understood as an alternative or in addition to common funding practices. The installation enshrined as GENESIS BLOCK thus does exactly what art organisations themselves (should) do, namely to fund contemporary art. In this sense, the installation shows “we are on the side of art producers”. In addition, the art organisation also show that they participate in an international network that enables alternative art production.This is clearly symbolized by the material block the organisation should exhibit in a prominent place. Through a QR code attached to the object visitors will be able to install a “Wallet” on their smartphone and immediately become part of the decentralized funding system.
Through our interpassive media art object, your company / organisations become part of a networked value chain process using blockchain technology. This process is also accessible to individuals, artists and promoters – for anyone who is interested.
At the moment, we are working on the funding of the nonprofit MACHFELD-Foundation that will be able to directly promote out-of-the-box artists to a greater extent, and to ensure price stability for KONJUNGATE by building up a collection of contemporary art.
The goal is to create alternative funding opportunities through an artistic process.
Thus the cyber novel MACHFELD is materializes again 20 years after its first appearance, in another language – the language of the cryptography.
