Smart Art, 2017
Acrylic on canvas, 100 x 100cm

According to the principle of bitcoin and Blockchain work, the author figured out a non-digital algorithm using which the true name and characteristics of the canvas were encoded, divided into boxes, connected by the chain and wrapped in the out-lines of the picture. In the opinion of the artist, the picture reveals the essence of cryptocurrency, IT and the mechanized world which we live in. After all, the generation of zero-zero is closely related to technologies. People become smarter, so why cant the art get a 'smart' status? So the author encodes all her paintings to let them go easier. Without using the computer the algorithm cannot be solved. A person who has never seen a PC wont be able to get it."
