Why did I title my milestone collection "AudioVisual Bitcoin Art"?

I will set the tone for my explanation here, with Merriam Webster's definition of "audiovisual": Definition of Audiovisual: designed to aid in learning or teaching by making use of both hearing and sight.

Since embarking on this mission to educate the masses about bitcoin using visual art, I have contemplated long and hard about how best to impact people with combinations of images and words.

I've studied the words and practices of experts in social psychology and propaganda from the likes of Gustave Le Bon, Edward Bernays, Friedrich Nietzsche, and others.

The voice of Gustave Le Bon, particularly seems to always ring in my head as I take particular creative decisions, at times when questioning whether or not a certain image may resonate with "the crowd"

 "The imagination of the crowds … is impressed above all by images. … It is possible to evoke them through the judicious use of words and formulas."

So here is my formula:
Three pieces of art using the same structure, each with their own narrative, to propagate the base idea "bitcoin is better money" with different groups of people: 1) The fundamental/economically focused, 2) The risk averse/wealthy, and 3) individuals who highly value freedom.
4 key points for each of those narratives, animated with full audio tracks to create a more immersive viewing experience.
Repetition and Reinforcement of the over-arching phrases and easy-to-understand aspects of the entire message for each.
All 3 pieces will also be released on collector's edition prints, will update this same post later today with photos and more details!
