description

AfterMoney is a research project that explores present and possible forms of value exchange in the digital economy to challenge perceptions of current as well as future practices. Resulting as a research tool that reveals some of the increasingly common non-monetary exchanges in a growing digital sharing economy. The project aims to highlight concealed practices of how we trade, barter and share value across multiple forms of currency.

We installed the app in the Design Informatics Pavilion as part of the FuturePlay Festival. Visitors were invited to try the interactive installation. By using the AfterMoney app, visitors were able to exchange a selfie for a flake or to sweep for sweets.
