This work is an allusion to THE MERGE in the Ethereum network.

One hundred individual photographs, all of my authorship and depicting children, are merged into a single image, in a pixelated style, to create a child's face with a deep and impenetrable gaze. This represents Ethereum.

Implementing the PoS consensus mechanism on Ethereum's mainnet (aka, The Merge) is a gigantic achievement and the most important event in the Ethereum network since its inception.

This work intends to celebrate that event, while doing so using photographs of children: a metaphor for the full potential of this network. Today's children are the hope of the future. So it is with Ethereum as well.
