Final Proposal

I will create a more expansive “universe” on Instagram and whatever other social media I see fit. It will expand off my last project with Frankenstein’s monster where I used Instagram to make the monster fill multiple boxes. I want to create an account that this idea will completely dominate its postings.

Online Performances

I thoroughly enjoy “let’s plays” by the former Machinima guys who have branched out to do their own things. The video below is SeaNanners most recognized which includes a couple other former Machinima workers. They tend to be ridiculous and I find SeaNanners very enjoyable!

The first part of the video is a bit more fun than the latter half. Just so you know.

Project 2

I went towards an unheard of route unless you have friends with Bit Coin.

I have recently gone towards Doge Coin.

http://dogecoin.com/

I set up a wallet on my phone and started “mining” and collecting Doge Coin at what’s known as “Faucets.”

This is a moderately well known alternative money source  through digital means.

Now as an artist in the digital age, we have to make ourselves known through digital means: Facebook, Instagram, etsy, deviant art and other big social media sites. But, I’m going with the underground. The reason I’m mining these Doge coins is to eventually buy ad space on Reddit and other sites that take the digital currency. Or to buy other means of supplies or maybe even food.

As our society comes ever closer to an exclusive digital currency. I am jumping on the bandwagon now rather than later.
