New media artist working with a focus on the representation of orientalism through innovative art-making methods. He examines the new conditions of cultural heritage perception with technically advantaged realities. As a primary core of his practice, Orkhan is focused on how the cultural and historical codes integrate a new forward-looking medium, metaverse, into contemporary views of our everyday life.

“The Idea of Saving Aesthetics – Latent GAN Carpets”
Edition 1 of 1
The Idea of Saving Aesthetics employs data consisting of traditional carpets, rugs, and kilims. Processed and trained using the latest state-of-the-art machine learning algorithms.
A neural network computing system that processed tens of thousands of archived ornamental images from museums and libraries.
It creates new unlimited combinations based on their similarities. “The Idea of Saving Aesthetics“ creates imaginary rugs that didn’t exist so far. More than 15,000 carpet compositions and sketches were collected by artist & processed by artificial intelligence.
It was aimed to create the feeling of diving into the paintings. AI generates new concepts and meanings. It blurs the boundaries between reality and the fake.
These actions further prove cultural development, as non-human intelligence replaces traditional craft tools.
World’s first AI-generated carpet – Project premiered in Moscow Contemporary Art Biennale 2019.

Slouchin’ Into Oblivion

“CatDirPillar”
Edition 1 of 1
Strollin’ through the hallways of your
mind. Sights and sounds by CatDirty.

“Moments: Void”
Edition 1 of 1
2160 x 2160 8s “Moments” series
explores our perception of nature and
its relationship with one’s state of
mind. Viewers are forced into
different distinctive emotional
qualities as the skylight abruptly
alternates. Over time, the sky shifts
into an abstract colour state to
challenge the viewer’s sensory
comprehension.

Photographer and DevOps director. I mostly focus on surrealism by using practical effects as well as my surroundings to create often dystopian/futuristic city landscapes.

“9782 // Emerging”
Edition 1 of 1
My first piece on SuperRare, minted to my own SR contract for 1/1 work. This photo was the first time I viewed my city in a truly unique and dreamlike way.
I was forever consumed by this type of imagery, and it’s a theme that’s played into a lot of my work ever since. The title of this piece relates to where I was in my career at the time, as this was the first photo I shared that got any real attention from my peers and set in motion a creative path I still follow to this day.
It seemed fitting to cement this memory on the blockchain to live forever.

Photographer by day, Pixel Artist by night.

“Afternoon Glow”
Edition 1 of 1
One of my most circulated and well
known images across social media,
this photograph is from a warm nook
in an old school gymnasium. This
beam of light casting across the back
of the building had me longing for
when times were much simpler. Shot
on Portra 400 with the Mamiya 7ii.

“cycles”
Edition 1 of 1
the life cycle of a flower. sound by
Esbe

“The Object of Desire”
Edition 1 of 1
The object of desire is an object
desired by someone else. Des
Lucréce, digital, 2022

Karin Fong is an Emmy-winning director and designer working at the intersection of film, television, and graphic design.

“Wunderkammer”
Edition 1 of 1
This artwork is the #01 of the Women In Motion Collection and is paired with a physical token: a unique display case. Curated by Motion Plus Design.

“The Watchmen”
Edition 1 of 1
Reaching high into the clouds as they protect their home on the wild pacific coast, the great keepers of the woodland realm stand watch over their kingdom.
Being among these moss-covered sentinels and feeling their embrace as they welcomed me into the fold,
I realized how lucky I was to share that moment with them as the noise of the outside world ceased to exist.
Inevitably, each will succumb to the storms that frequent this region and they will nurture new generations of life by providing habitat and sustenance for the diverse ecosystem below.
One may fall as the greater forest thrives, keeping the scale of life balanced. 

 

“Hover.”
Edition 1 of 1
What has once been forgotten is now
beginning to resurface… Just a faint
whisper of recollection becoming
clearer and stronger. “Hover.” is the
first piece in my genesis series,
“memories.” Memories are powerful
things, they can shape who we are
and what we do. They can be a
comfort in difficult times or a
reminder of past experiences.
Whether they’re good or bad, happy
or sad, memories make us unique
individuals.
