This project visualises the challenge of human-money relationships by testing the system of mother. For Han's observation the term mother is the only concept known to us that can overcome the cruelty of capitalism and de-commodify a body (baby.)
Crypto-currency is a carefully chosen subject in this project because it is a substance that most shows how invisible and immaterial our money has become for us. – Money has become a fiction. A fiction can be painful, violent, and real. Especially if it has its own narrative that we cannot predict.
In Proof of Mother, the baby is dead and alive at the same time and the financial systems we are living with right now are both dead and alive. It isn’t only necessarily one or the other. They can be flipped and moved back and forth. It’s a quality of predicting the future.
