Life Cycle is a sculpture which represents Bitcoin breaking from the circular nature of a government led economy.

Fiat follows the same path as the materials from which it is derived - beginning as a seed of an idea spread across the land, but eventually returning to the soil whether as ashes burned for warmth in the Weimar Republic or composting on a roadside in Venezuela.

Life Cycle is one of nine unique pieces composed of currencies from countries which have experienced hyperinflation.

The log symbolizes a now worthless item when compared to the currencies' former state. However, sprouting from the log is a sign of life - the Bitcoin genesis address is seen on the leaf and represents a way of breaking the cycle.

Materials: Zimbabwean dollars, Argentine pesos, Venezuelan bolivars and mixed media

Dimensions: 12 in x 4 in x 5 in

Weight: 2 lbs

How It Works

3. Once the item is paid for, deposits are refunded to the remaining participants. For security reasons, these refunds will be issued the week after the conference.
