“Crypto Miner Car”

Outline

This work is part of a project that focuses, in the context of climate change, on the computation process of mining cryptocurrencies, and the enormous amount of electric power that is consumed, to explore how these things can be integrated into the basic structures of present-day cities and society at large. The work presented at this exhibition is a system for powering electric cars using exhaust heat, which is collected through a modified crypto mining GPU unit. Looking also into such related issues as sustained energy production and automated driving, the project aims to rebrand the automobile as a status symbol of the modern age, into a symbol for the redistribution of wealth.
