Addie Wagenknecht is a visionary artist, technologist, culture hacker, open-source researcher, and early collaborator with the Foundation team. She has been widely featured in publications from the New York Times to the Wall Street Journal, and her work has been collected by The Whitney Museum of American Art, among other leading institutions. With both conceptual and technical agility, she explores power, networked consciousness, and the anxieties implicit in surveillance capitalism.
When an artist drops a limited-edition series on Foundation, each piece is represented by a digital token. As more collectors buy each piece, the corresponding token rises in value.
As a piece’s value fluctuates, buyers can cash in by selling tokens back to the market. Artists earn a cut each time their tokens are bought and sold, allowing them to capitalize on the hype they create.
When a creator is ready to ship their work, buyers can redeem whole tokens for the physical good. If you want to skip crypto, you can always use your card to buy the physical good.
