Ligatures (Node 1)
Edition 1 of 1

How can objects of speculative value be reimagined as support for mutual aid? Ligatures (Node 1) is a new augmented reality series that connects lines of support — between artist, collector, and collectives dedicated to mutual aid. Node 1 expresses the concept of a multi-nodal decentralized network as an interlocking kinetic sculptural form that changes over time — like a living organism. The collector will receive a link to the AR artwork through the Verisart Certificate of Authenticity. As a digital piece, Node 1 will exist in 3 locations at once — the collector’s home, the artist’s studio, and the site of mutual aid. Sougwen 愫君 Chung is a Chinese-Canadian artist and (re)searcher. Chung explores the dynamics of humans and systems and is a pioneer of human-machine collaboration. Her works have been exhibited internationally including at Art Basel, MIT Media Lab and New Museum. This work uses a Fair Trade Art certificate and 100% of the artist’s proceeds from the NFT will be donated to EV loves NYC.

Years Of Pride
Edition 1 of 1

Originally commissioned by The New York Times, the 50 Years of Pride cover commemorates a seminal moment in history, The StoneWall Inn riots. Half-century ago, the police and patrons clashed at a gay bar, the Stonewall Inn, in Greenwich Village NYC. The riot poured out onto Christopher Street where now the pride colors intersect with the street crosswalk lines. That clash helped spark a movement that continues to this day. This was created to honor and observe the 50 year anniversary of that historic moment. The work draws inspiration from the pride colors painted within the Christopher Street crosswalk by turning them into a massive typographic 50. 10% of the sale of this NFT will be donated to the LGBT Center in NYC.

DoubleJAW
Edition 1 of 1

DoubleJAW was created to tear through flesh and crush bone, all while demoralizing those that bear witness. Another enormous advanced bio-mechanical mechanism designed by an anti-human AI to exterminate all people. Several variations were manufactured, all with aesthetics designed to paralyze with fear, then tear to shreds. The AI was an early experiment by the DopePope corporation that they admit “got away from them” but are now “just curious to see what it comes up with”. This artwork was created by digitally photographing several toy dolls, from all angles, then manipulating the photos, and painting over that into the concepts seen here. This is one in a series of 6, all done with this approach. The concepts were specifically designed to inspire wonder, confusion, awe, and fear. The series was done at an early stage in my career, before getting into 3D sculpture. It exhibits my determination to capture a 3D aesthetic, from before my foray into ZBrush. And it’s a series of which I am very proud.


NERI

IN BLOOM

Tokyoplastic

Tokyo
tokyoplastic.com
Vector pioneers who revolutionised web design and inspired a generation of artists and designers. Distorting the lines between animation and graphic art, mixing cute and grotesque, and fused with perfectly timed sound effects, tokyoplastic was more an experience than a website. Its iconic characters and razor sharp animation captivated an audience of millions and earned it a cult like status in the industry that still endures today.

Kokeshi Eat – Tokyoplastic 2.0
Edition 1 of 1

Tokyoplastic 2.0 was the culmination of two and a half years intensive work. The resulting site was a wild vector adventure that surprised you at every turn. Pushing the current technology beyond its limits to create a website unlike any other online experience. It went on to win numerous international awards and inspired a generation of animators and designers. While it was published in dozens of books and magazines it never really worked on paper, it was too alive for that, dependent on the sharp animation and overwhelming sounds that made it completely unique. The perfect medium for it was the one that it was created for, nothing else would do it justice. Thanks to the advent of NFTs it is now possible to own part of this iconic site as it was intended to be experienced. This looped animation brings together several of the key elements from tokyoplastic 2.0, the kokeshi, box, eaty and tentacles. Freshly remastered and presented in razor, sharp super smooth 4K 60fps. The winning bidder will also receive an exclusive 8640×2160 360 SBS Virtual Reality video of the same. A unique, 1/1 edition.

Bagerart

Kurdistan
linktr.ee/BagerArt
Bager Kaya is a professional Kurdish photo-Artist based in Istanbul Turkey. Kaya started the art of photography with the Olympus compact camera, which was gifted by his mother. The light-shadow, color, loosening of clear and precise lines, melting, and fusing of forms in composition and compositions of the Baroque period have a great influence on Kaya’s art. The fine arts library, where Kaya has worked for many years, has been a great help in improving his eye.

Worthlessness
Edition 1 of 1

Still-life painting has been a genre that most clearly demonstrates ownership and the purchasing act of humans throughout history. As Roland Barthes claimed still-life painting is a “commodity empire”. The genre of still-life illustrates the glamour of wealth that affluent people of the upper class have earned through colonizing people and regional places. My photography lifts the glamour off the still-life genre and shows the type of decay within an unfair world-order behind the scenes. Our nature and world are decomposing as a result of the problematic relationship that the human race has developed with nature from past to present. As I believe in direct narration, I name these series of photographs ‘decayedness’.
