“mondo mono alkroĉita al nerompita naturo” “de la ŝtato svislando” are the words written in Esperanto on the coin.

This financial system bases itself on a worldwide eco-currency, which shapes every country and its value, which, must be measured on its intact nature. This means that the value (or quantity of money) of each nationally characterised world-currency fluctuates, depending on the amount of intact nature of the respective country.

There is a display on the back of the coin showing a potential value. This value will be reached when the whole national territory comprises of intact nature. The coin’s value, however, is the amount currently shown on the display. Its value is based on the amount of intact nature of its respective country. This in turn generates an incentive for the care and replenishment of natural resources.

The work “World currency of Switzerland Bound to its Intact Nature” is based on Martin Gut’s book and art object “The System of linking Cash Generation for Art and Cultural Innovation with the relationship of Monetary Supply in Ecology”.

generation-for-art-and- cultural-innovation-with-the-relationship-of-monetary-supply-in-ecology.html

Martin Gut explains that monetary system must be reformed from exploitation incentives to ones of diligence in his book “The System of linking Cash Generation for Art and Cultural Innovation with the relationship of Monetary Supply in Ecology”. He suggests a solution of using contemporary art and culture as a seismometer for cash generation. Monetary supply should be bound to intact nature, because money can be linked to everything that is valuable to a person. Hereby one assigns the two attributes “Nature” and “Spirit” to the financial system, which it has been lacking, to
achieve balance and justice. The biosphere of humanity would thereby simultaneously be repaired and protected.

To implement this system, Martin Gut suggests a fourth power woven into democracy: Nature in the form of Ecological Sciences. This will give our livelihood the voice it is entitled to as well as the necessary emphasis that it needs for implementation.

This book is hand-bound, made from handmade paper – recycled from stock exchange notifications and toilet paper – and is handwritten by Martin Gut. Along with the philosophical introduction and reference to the contents of a scholarly examination, the rest of the pages are blank. Martin Gut knowingly passes the ball to society. An idea should spread like a virus and when the seed is watered by enough people, hopefully something will grow out of it, as time is of the essence.
