We have a dysfunctional monetary system, whereby 97% of money is created through the digital issuing of debt by commercial banks (Dyson, 2013), but are at the crux of a monetary revolution, the last of which took place 300 years ago.
Through practice-led research – for which I will co-create and deploy a series of digital interventions which will appropriate and subvert the aesthetics of money and banking – I will try to answer the following questions:
- What is the future of money in a globalised, digital age?
- What are the implications of a monetary revolution?
- And how can participatory, digital interventions nurture an understanding and stimulate debate about this topic?
