Description:
HD video 11’14’’, art-exam tables, speakers, cables 2021 From the singular viewpoint of a worker in a bitcoin-mine outwards, into the contemporary ecological, economic, and cultural way of life on the Dadu River, Sichuan, China. Cryptocurrency intrudes into life on the river, competing for electricity from the grid, young labourers during the rainy season, and disrupting endangered fish species. An overcapacity of hydropower production, a.k.a. stranded generation, brings the highest density of bitcoin mining to the region and, alongside, people without direction: drifting. The circumstance of a seasonal economy is charged with temporary value, leaving the stranded generations, both kW/h and young people's lives chronically stranded.
