cool cash, 2015

cool cash is a social experiment launched on kickstarter in 2015.

with a goal of reaching $1000, the project was an effort to make people exchange “real” money for cool cash, a new, alternative form of currency where its value was intrinsically tied to how people agreed to perceive its value.

as a critique of the unregulated and often hyper-inflated art market, cool cash is also directly linked to the changing value of the artist and her work.

the project was fully funded and cool cash now exists in limited circulation.

it has been shown at the internet yami-ichi and the textile museum of canada.
