- What does your genesis artwork mean to you today?

The critic of blockchain "utlilty" still holds true more than ever. It has outlived in activity, marketcap, and noteriy of bitnation, and a document of now defunct television show "The Keiser Report" on Russia Today (RT). pepenation is the first community card of the rarepepedirectory. It helped to inspire others to create their own rarepepes and directly or indirectly inspired much of the blockchain art we see today. At times I think why did I make this ugly green face and did I create a Frankenstein? Fankenstein and Pepe are both green. As the scientist gave life to the monster Frankenstein, so did the Rarepepe Scientists gave life to Rarepepe. The question that I ask myself, what have I created? A monster that mirrors our burned out dystopia or a mythical creature that dances on the ashes of a burned out dystopia?

- What was a significant event that happened in the 10-year history of Blockchain art that influenced you as an artist?

The creation of the token systems counterparty on bitcoin and dogeparty on doge in 2014. Before that my experiments delt with how to make physical private keys in the form of sound. These token systems opened up a new field of play that made it fun and technically easy to try new things.

- What message(s) are you sharing in your new {R(Evolutionaries);} artwork?

We have to have a better party than the legacy system.

Genesis: Pepenation
