I'm happy to hear your comments, even if you don't like the artwork at all... Smiley

No offence to you but this is a horse shit attempt at making BTC.  Even my kids could make something better than this, actually anyone out of pre school could chuck some peeled fruit and gold paper in a frame

I am commenting as an art buyer here and not as an awkward poster, fella please get someone to check your "art" before you post here- this post is wasting valuable internet space

Thanks for your comment.

The frame is actually part of the artwork. I intentionally burned it with a Bunsen burner (put on protective paint afterwards).

I can't see the photos for some reason, can you provide text links to them in the OP also?

You could have thrown some apple peels and potatoes in there too! Make it a nice veg fruit skin art mix worthy of the louvre  Shocked

“The root problem with conventional currency is all the trust that's required to make it work. The central bank must be trusted not to debase the currency, but the history of fiat currencies is full of breaches of that trust. Banks must be trusted to hold our money and transfer it electronically, but they lend it out in waves of credit bubbles with barely a fraction in reserve. We have to trust them with our privacy, trust them not to let identity thieves drain our accounts.” Satoshi Nakamoto

Yes that's definitely worth considering... for this work I chose mandarin peels because of the color and the surface that more closely resembles animal/human skin. Smiley

Having "skin in the game" is an idiom used by parts of the financial community.

I might go get my feet done, save the skank foot skin shavings, glue them to a satori chip and try and sell it. If I did that it would still sell for more than this piece

I wouldn't do it as it is an insult to the collectors here... but again it is better than this piece as I have said..

Good luck with your sale Smiley

Thank you. Actually it is not really important for me if it sells or for what amount - as I have stated in my previous auction thread, the act of creating an artwork alone is enjoyable for me. And if it is able to evoke whatever kind of emotions when shared it's even better. Smiley

I think it's a great accomplishment of my artwork that you feel that the collectors here are insulted by offering it. Smiley
