Alternative Reality Currency

About This Project

The alternative reality currency project reimagines the Japanese Yen if it were inspired by the infamous literary piece of the Heian Period, The Tales of Genji and its writer, Lady Murasaki. The Heian Period spanned from 794-1185 BC and was a period most known for the rise and refinement of the visual and literary arts. Women were of great influence during the Heian, from creating the Japanese alphabet of hiragana and one of the most infamous pieces of literature in Japanese history.
