About the Episode
This week we explore the topic of crypto-art with artist Nanu Berks. Nanu used to be completely disinterested in money and just wanted to make art, now she’s spreading the message of cryptocurrency through murals, paintings, virtual reality galleries and five-senses installations.
She tells us about living in the jungle, traveling all over South and Central America, and how she first discovered bitcoin. Learn about her art, how she pays the rent, and how viewers experience her five-senses exhibitions.
