Glitching Juno Moneta in Red
Juno Moneta was the presiding deity for the fort where the ancient Roman empire minted its money, the origin of the words money and minting, she is literally the Goddess of money. Using contemporary digital plasticity and glitch, this sculpture ushers in the new global structure of the decentralized blockchain and its disruption of existing artistic, economic, and sociopolitical orthodoxies. Each spin reveals gold veining in the middle to suggest mining. Set against a bold Venetian red, this transformation deforms laterally and glitches multidirectionaly suggestive of the complexities of this nascent revolution.
