Sä-v(ə-)rən-tē by Micah Johnson


We are honored to represent Micah Johnson, an artist willing to push the envelope in his artist process who is tackling some of the most important issues facing society today.

Micah Johnson has created Sä-v(ə-)rən-tē, a time-sensitive photographic artwork that evolves over the next 11 years, and is available today via Async.Art on the blockchain.

This vitally important work bridges the gap between our digital and real world, allowing viewers to donate directly to the children photographed, thus positively impacting their lives.

It is a symbolic act of sovereignty, an independent artistic solution to the historically oppressive legacy of the financial system.

Every year on the boys’ respective birthdays, a Layer change reveals what each boy wants to be when they grow up along with a bitcoin wallet that anyone can contribute to.

Each night at 8:00 pm PST, the work enters night mode until 8:00 am PST.

The mission of the work started with Johnson wanting to empower the two youths seeing themselves in high-art, but quickly turned into the most important use-case for Bitcoin.

"We're proud to represent an artist embracing groundbreaking ways to showcase his art. In a year that has prevented so many of us to visit museums and galleries and have the kind of meaningful interactions with works of art, we feel it's more important than ever to give collectors and art enthusiasts access to our artists and the work they create," says Jacquelin Napal of Art Angels Gallery Los Angeles.

As of today, Micah and this artwork have set the record for the highest selling digital artwork at $120,000. To donate, visit https:/async.art/featuered/micah-johnson
