Title: Searching for Roots

 

Artist: Edison Duran Lucena

 

Medium: AI, Digital Painting, Poetry + Animation (AR)

 

Price: .5 ETH

 

Edition: 1/1

 

AR: Download Artivive App. Scan image to see it come to life.
 

Bio: Combining AR and AI to bring poems beyond words

 

Description:

Perhaps only a few things can leave you more vulnerable, presenting you the opportunity to be more honest with yourself than writing a poem and publishing it for the world to read. It opens the door to the depths of your soul and exposes yourself to perhaps not being understood.But it is also an act of liberation, where the chains are transformed into verses. "Searching for roots" is an immersive artwork that uses augmented reality to bring the spectator on a journey through the painting, revealing a lot more than the eyes can see. 

This piece 1 of 1 was created using as inspiration the poem in Spanish called "Sirio" where the author deals with the loss of guidance and the search for meaning.

To experience the immersive dimension of the artwork, install the "Artivive" app on your phone and scan the main image.

 

This is the "opera prima" of the author in the NFT world, and it belongs to a broader collection of immersive art based on poems called "La Invocación de los Efímeros", or

The Summoning of the Ephemera, by Edison Duran Lucena, conformed by 21 poems and created in Ann Arbor, Michigan, while the author was studying for its Ph.D. in Astronomy and Astrophysics. This NFT includes the poem's page signed by the author.

Title: optimism_rebirthed


 

Artist: ejthek


 

Medium: Digital + Programmable Art


 

Price: 0.77 ETH


 

Edition: 1/1


 

Bio:

hey hey! i'm a digital artist based in canada and find myself driven to discover ways to express my thought journey in primarily abstract or surreal ways. i’ve been minting nft cryptoart since 2020 and grateful for the opportunity to participate as a longtime member of The Guild decentralized global artist consortium.


 

Description:

an abstract composition reflecting on the difficulties of life and the sadness that can overwhelm so easily >> but also a tribute to those who, out of spite, choose to face tomorrow with optimism.


 

the artwork was birthed while contemplating sad news shared by a persevering friend. the skies at the time seemed to portray my inner emotions with their foreboding feel. i captured them as digital photographs and manipulated them into 2d abstract works, but they felt incomplete. eventually i started experimenting with them in a 3d context and arrived at two final compositions, one reflecting the sadness, one reflecting an enduring optimism despite the circumstances. the async.art platform was chosen due to it’s programmable nature allowing the states to cycle as our emotions and attitudes so often do.

Ka Series, 2018.

 

Artist: Lou Peralta

 

Medium: Photography

 

Price: .72 ETH

 

Edition: 1/1

 

Bio:

As the fourth generation of a family of portrait photographers, I devote myself full time to the artistic exploration of portraiture.

 

Description:

After more than 30 years as a portrait photographer, photographing thousands of people, I ask myself: “What is it I’m really portraying?”  This series revealed new lines of research to me.  Call it “Ka,” as in the Egyptian mythology, “conscience,” in the words of the psychologists, or “soul,” like some religions, I know now that what I was trying to portray was that living part, that vital energy that disappears when you die.  In the search for that vital light, I try to make the “soul” visible.

Bio: 

new media artist, cybertechnician, dodecahedonist


 

Description: 

Their city consumed by flames of a dying star, The Builders looked back in reminiscent grace, their memories decaying. As the solar conflagration returned their blood to the dust beneath the streets, a curious force swept through their physical bodies, separating flesh and consciousness from their souls.

Reborn as spheres of plasma energy, those who built the ancient city from sinew and steel begin to ascend. The mechatropolis receding quickly below them, their memories erased, The Ascended begin on their forever upward path toward new understandings of the oldest knowledge.

Art: strayltd + Music: plutonic mind

 

Medium: Collage + Animation + Music
 

Price:.08 ETH

 

Editions: 21

The first in a series of collages depicting the realms of The Wheel Of Samsara. The allegorical themes contained within The Wheel give guidance to decision making on all levels of existence from the mundane to the deep, spiritual struggles of life. The approach to collage and animation is intentionally naive, and by openly naming the source of the imagery for the collage, a playful subtext has been added to the motif.
