Moving Pictures Gallery is pleased to announce our second Performing Systems. A single channel audiovisual performance by Jonas Bers will be recorded and streamed before a live audience. Excerpts from the projections will then be exhibited as unique, single edition artworks. The performance and exhibition are presented as a Bronx, NY satellite for Creative Tech Week, NYC.

Performing Systems is a conceptual experiment in which artists improvise within the Moving Pictures Gallery platform to measure cultural value in a post-blockchain era.  

Bers’ video and sound feed will be recorded, then excerpted; these singular media artworks will be archived when they are uploaded to a secure, permanent storage system and assigned a unique code - the “hash”.  

The editioned works will be exhibited, and available for purchase for the duration of Creative Tech Week.   

Moving Pictures Gallery is working with Artlery and Ascribe.io to enable the one-to-one valuation of digital media artworks as single edition art objects. Together we are mapping digital media art to cryptocurrency, investigating how they substantiate one another.
