Currency of the Future

All the bottle tops.

In 2012 I visited Kansas City, and in Kansas City lives Just Colcord. Just is an artist who uses found objects in his sculptures. I took photos of him in his apartment, and posted those photos as a blog post here.

I asked him about buying a piece of his artwork, but he said he doesn’t sell his pieces for money. Money is too easy to earn and use to buy unique pieces of art, and someone should have to put in more effort to buy something Just has put effort into making.

He’d previously mentioned that after the apocalypse, bottle tops with the anti-tamper rings turned inside out and wrapped around them would become money. “The Currency of the Future” he called it. I proposed a deal. I’d collect 100 such bottle tops, and he’d see if that was enough to “buy” a piece of his artwork.

So that’s what I did. From September 2012 to December 2013, if I bought and drank out of a bottle with the right kind of anti-tamper ring, I wrote a number on it, and took an iPhone photo of it in the location I finished the bottle.

It’s been a fun project. The results are below. The 100 bottle tops are currently in the post, on the way to Kansas City.
