Trading (Hi)story is a screenshot of a performance writing experiment that uses OpenSea’s trading history as a canvas for an ode. Each wallet name becomes a line of poetry, and creates a momentary haven of pause and poetry in a space normally dominated by concerns over the monetary value of art.

This piece was submitted to the 2021 0x_b1 x Dontbuymeme NFT content, commemorating 0x_b1’s role in DeFi. Each wallet also contains an NFT with an allusion to Meme.

Trading (Hi)story was collected by the founder of Meme, Jordan Lyall.
