What's up with rat? Art sends a message about the Fed, bitcoin, and the financial crisis 10 years later

Nelson Saiers is a polymath; a highly successful Wall St derivatives trader who completed a PhD in Math in 1 year at the age of 23 and an artist who has painted and exhibited works of mind-bending concepts straddling Math and Finance.
 
We worked together at Deutsche Bank through the global financial crisis, having literally ring-side seats to what felt like the fall of capitalism and joked about wearing Pith helmets in the spirit of WW1 through it all.

About ten years ago, while TARP was bailing out the economy, Satoshi Nakamoto wrote this code along with the words 03 Jan 2009 The Times, Chancellor on brink of second bailout for banks, referencing the equivalent in England. Satoshi seemed pretty opposed to centralization and said it was doomed in the end. I wanted to be true to his views and reflect this in the artwork.
 
Shreyas: So this is in the spirit of that given the timing ... Can you describe parts of the piece?
 
Nelson: Sure. The eye has a giant POW! symbol extracted and modified from Roy Lichtenstein's epic painting "Sweet Dreams Baby" and is referencing Proof Of Work, an impor
