The Chaos Machine, 2018

Materials: Oak wood, steel, slate and glass
Dimensions & weight: 192 x 52 x 52 cm / 198 pounds
Required floor space: between 8 et 10 m2
Electricity: 220 V

The work is a crypto-jukebox that plays music whenever a banknote is burned. The music comes from a specific playlist, listed on the Blockchain. The burning of the ticket causes the emission of a random musical piece and the printing of a QR code allowing the user to add via a private key, a new piece in the playlist of the Chaos Machine. The Chaos Machine is networked and has two copies to date, both signed by the Distributed Gallery. When a ticket burns in one of the machines, the music is emitted from both Chaos Machines at the same time, regardless of the distance between the two copies.
