Vancouver based artist Germaine Koh produced this seres of copper tokens back in 2002, entitled ‘Pledge’.
‘Pledge is an edition of copper tokens, each bearing the words “I WILL”. The tokens may serve as an alternate form of currency, a sort of promissory note for recognizing non-commercial exchanges, particularly social bonds of trust that elude quantification. Abstract intentions may be concretized by actually putting them to use. The tokens circulate quietly, formalizing personal gestures and marking moments of individual interaction — small changes.’
