CADAF Artist Spotlight

As blockchain technology becomes ever present in transactions of all kinds, it’s important that we all understand the basics of what blockchain even means. We created this project to understand blockchain, and to apply it to something a little less serious, like butts.

Buttchain” is an art project that uses blockchain to record every time someone takes a seat, creating an immutable ledger that traces its lifetime. Using the encoded unique signatures, the chair creates a piece of art for each person. 

Inspired by the tenets of blockchain—the art itself is a visualization of each block. Each successive piece of art builds on the previous one, so that movements happen over time, and the pieces of art only align if put in sequence.

The Perfect Seat

Simply take a seat, and watch as your butt becomes the next link in a growing chain of artwork. Maybe when you get up – you’ll understand blockchain just a tiny bit better.
