    As early as February 2015, Bitchcoin proposed two ideas that are only now being seriously considered: using blockchain to track ownership of artwork and public fractional ownership of artwork. The work went viral, gaining coverage in ViceWired, and many others.

    Meyohas transformed the Where gallery into a cryptocurrency mine, viewable through a live-streamed webcam. Coin buyers received a certificate with key number encryption allowing them access to the BitchCoin software program. Through this custom platform, currency can be sent and received.

    Meyohas guaranteed each individual Bitchcoin with a five-inch by five-inch segment of one of the associated, available editions of Speculation. The corresponding print was placed in a bank vault. A collector who acquired 25 Bitchcoins (at a total price of $2,500) controlled 625 square inches of one Meyohas photograph—just enough for the entirety of the work. The coin holder could then decide to trade in their Bitchcoin for ownership of the physical photograph, or wait to redeem for another print at a future date.

  • “It is perhaps indicative of the shifts in the fundamental dynamic of capital accumulation that have occurred in the last fifty years, foregrounding speculation over production, that, while Andy Warhol opened a Factory in 1962, Sarah Meyohas designed a financial instrument in 2015.” - Nathan Eisenberg, Hypocrite Reader # 58
