What happens when I transfer cryptocurrency, when the data are in-between the sender and the receiver? What does a digital transaction of value look like from the perspective of electrical signals? How are these flows conducted through the microscopic architectures of computer chips? And how do copper-plated layouts determine the pre-emption of digital wealth? Although cryptocurrency can be seen as mere numbers on a computer screen, in-between their binary procedures exist myriad vibrant materialities. This visual exploration aims to challenge the myopic conception of digital value by demonstrating the coexistence between computation and nature.
