Beautiful meta-candy (2022) Shaun Wilson 1920 x 1080px, H264, 30 seconds, 61.0 mb

A series of Individually made digital thought coins that feel emotion about bureaucracy, aesthetics and currency.

Shaun Wilson (Australian, b.1972) is a contemporary artist working across interdisciplinary approaches to Meta-modernism in digital art, cinema, painting, and miniatures. His work proposes allegorical commentary across a wide range of investigations screened and exhibited at museums, festivals and galleries including the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, Australian Centre for the Moving Image, Moscow Museum of Fine Arts, Cannes Film Festival, Venice Film Festival, Berlinale, Institute of Modern Art Brisbane, and Scope Art Fair Basel.

His work is represented in public and private collections throughout Australia, Europe, Asia, USA and South America. See more at www.shaunwilsonresearch.net

What would happen if money had consciousness?

Beautiful Thought Coins is a collection of 200 made by hand NFT artworks known as 'thoughts' from artist Shaun Wilson, available to collectors using the Polygon blockchain. Each thought manifests its own palette that poses a conceptual question about money, bureaucracy, and emotion.

They are both coins and pictures trading in a system of rarity. Each thought has its own emotional state representing a range of colours that influence the type of thoughts it has become. What if this new kind of digital currency embedded an AI capable of determinism to recognise empathy, morality, and ethicality to prevent unethical trading by refusing to transact itself? Now that changes things doesn't it...

Some thought coins are curious and happy whereas others are sad or depressed. We don't necessarily consider currency as having an emotion but I like to think of these thoughts as a meta-evolution. These are all beautiful thought coins.
