In April 2023, Peti Triot will unveil the first blockchain-based art installation in the renowned DESIEGO art gallery located in the heart of Seoul.
The artist plans to expand the installation throughout the entire city to get as many people as possible to participate. With the piece, Peti Triot aims to conduct a social experiment that will reveal the thoughts and opinions of Koreans whose identities will remain completely anonymous.
Who is Peti Triot?
Peti Triot is an artist active in the blockchain community who has not revealed their identity. When making their blockchain-based art installation, Peti Triot utilized the unique technology of the Qamon project.
Qamon is a messaging platform operating on the Everscale blockchain that facilitates absolutely anonymous peer-to-peer communication. The realization of the creative part of the project was entrusted to the Ongroo Inc. Korean art content agency.
Peti Triot’s blockchain-based art installation is a kind of anonymous messenger where individuals can leave any message without the ability for it to be traced back to them.
Once a message is sent, it is encrypted and stored on the blockchain. All messages are broadcast in real-time for anyone to see on YouTube, and simultaneously archived on the project’s Twitter.
One potential benefit of a blockchain-based art installation that operates as an anonymous messenger is that it allows individuals to communicate freely and express themselves without fear of censorship or retaliation. The use of blockchain technology provides a high level of security and anonymity, ensuring that messages cannot be traced back to their original authors.
The benefit of using Qamon
The technological foundation of the project lies in Qamon, a platform operating on the Everscale network that offers users end-to-end encrypted and absolutely confidential wallet-to-wallet communication that cannot be compromised.
This means that the platform guarantees that messages sent between users are completely private and secure, and that the communication cannot be intercepted or accessed by any third parties.
That Qamon operates on the Everscale network means that it can handle a large volume of transactions, making it suitable for a project that could potentially have to process a high volume of messages.
Peti Triot’s blockchain-based art is currently available online and Ongroo Inc. art content agency will be putting in physical installations in multiple places in Seoul soon. These installations include the project’s centerpiece, which will be located directly in the city center in the famous DESIEGO gallery.

Messages to NFTs
This is the first blockchain-based conceptual art project Peti Triot has produced, and the first exhibition of its kind in South Korea. The messaging-based blockchain art was inspired by “News,” a work by Hans Haake, a well-known artist in the field of conceptual and installation art from the 1970s.

Every 144th message sent in Peti Triot’s project will be printed out on a braille printer and also turned into an NFT. These NFTs and braille printouts will be on display for viewers to see at the project’s locations throughout the city.
