Hello to all,

Many of you here know that i am a luxury artist that works with exotic wood as a medium and am new to Bitcoin. I was asked last week by a major art exhibition firm to submit a piece that could go on their "Facultas" tour. The Facultas tour is a traveling exhibit of art pieces that will make 29 stops in 9 months spanning every continent on the planet. The Exhibition starts in March of 2015.

Facultas is a representation of Power, Means, Capacity and Ability. It is a Latin word which is often used to define the wealthy or those with above average financial means and every piece in the exhibit is to portray this.

Although i am new to the Bitcoin scene, i feel that a Bitcoin art piece would be perfect for this exhibit as Bitcoin in and of itself portrays a lot of these same characteristics.

What i am looking for from the community is some input and ideas on what kind of Bitcoin piece i should create. I think it should be something both artistic, and functional. I would like to somehow incorporate a Bitcoin address with hidden private key (kind of like a physical coin) into the piece so the piece actually holds value, turning the phrase "holding value" into a literal sense on the piece. But beyond that i would like input from this community as i really want it to portray Bitcoin in every aspect. As far as i know to date, this will be the first time in history that a Bitcoin art work makes a mark on art history on this scale as it will be traveling and exhibited with over $500 million dollars worth of art and viewed by some of the wealthiest people in the world. I think this is a great opportunity to let Bitcoin make a mark on the upscale community and bring it into their world as art but spark their interests in it as a financial tool.

Please comment with your thoughts, ideas, and inspirations below, A piece of this magnitude will take a lot of time to complete and i need to get the basic concept together soon so i can start and have it done by February 21st 2015.

Thanks to all !!

maybe the texture of the wood itself could be used for the privkey?
it is unique for every wood, but i dont know how to convert that deterministically to a number.

most physical coins needs to be destroyed when using the btc. i dont think this is a good idea for your work - they are just to nice Wink

do you have the possibility to craft a nice looking and working lock out of wood? the key and the lock could be the art piece; and inside their is just an ordinary qr code of a MN multisig wallet (means: you still need another key to spent funds.)

maybe building a new case for a trezor would work? imho this would not work for a real artwork - t least for me

^ just a few thought; i will follow your work Wink

I can carve in hidden compartments that you wouldn't need a lock and key for as you would have to look under a magnifier glass to find the button to push to open the compartment. I can also carve in lock and key mechanisms. I think the Bitcoin stored in the piece would probably remain with the piece forever. Unless i decided to sell the piece after the exhibit and the new owner redeemed the coins. I dont think an trezor case would fit the bill for this exhibit. The average value of each art piece is between $500,000 and $1 million dollars. So what i am creating will fall somewhere in that range as well.

This is a very good idea, make a physical BTC with teakwood and tigers eye oak inlay. Expensive, but worth it and all of its beauty.
