Bitcoin-Inspired Generative Tulips ‘Mosaic Virus’

Who knew that tulips could actually be a good representation of Bitcoin? Artist Anna Ridler created the ‘Mosaic Virus’ where the stripes of the animated tulips codify the price of Bitcoin between July and December 2017. The work is a result of a machine learning algorithm that used over 10,000 original photographs by the artist.

“Mosaic” is the name of the virus that causes the stripes in a petal which increased their desirability and helped cause the speculative prices during the time. In this piece, the stripes depend on the value of bitcoin, changing over time to show how the market fluctuates.

Mosaic Virus is a piece commissioned by the Impakt Festival. Watch the full video here.
