The more the likes, the less you are…

Edition 1 of 1

Throughout the last decade, digital artists (like myself) used several platforms to pave their way into the realm of Art. But after multitude of rejection from art curators and galleries, we’ve turn our hope into foreseeable success in Art through the mechanic of “likes”. However the ideology behind gathering the likes of strangers online made us believe that we’ve finally being valued for our art. But in the end we’ve actually turned into someone we can barely recognized. Few are the ones that can balance both the integrity and notoriety. For some, the “likes” has covered the essence of why we’ve actually started all of this in the first place. “The more the likes, the less you are…(you)”

FORESTA

Edition 1 of 1

FORESTA is my genesis NFT piece. FORESTA was born from the need to confront myself with the world of art in motion, the environment of this work was not recreated in computer graphics but was made with recycled materials and filmed with drone on green screen and then mounted digitally. For the first time in my work the human figure has been included. A sort of Adam discovering the new digital world.

In 2019 when international hype materialized around Hidden Portraits, Hermes had been creating the collection for over 10 years. Their visual content, figures disappearing behind masks, perfectly and almost clairvoyantly directly reflect the current era. Today, Hermes art has been featured in Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, collaborations with Christie’s, and museum invitations to create works from pieces in their collections. 

Hidden Batoni I.1

Edition 1 of 1

Lubomirska, painted in 1780 by Pompeo Batoni in Rome. To gain classical education, one of the most important travel destinations for aristocrats of the 18th century, was Italy. They came to experience the highly appreciated painting of the Italian Renaissance. The desire to be photographed during one’s travels existed even before the invention of photographyThe painter Pomepo Batoni recognized this desire and offered portrait paintings to travelers, who could then pick them up upon their return trip. He is considered the inventor of the tourist portrait. This sitter purchased just such portrait on her trip through Italy, and also had several copies made to pass on. She had herself depicted as Polyhymnia, the Greek muse of sacred poetry, music, and dance – note the scroll of sheet music. My modification picks up the vibrancy of the music. To emphasize the connection between head and body, her hair ribbon now extends over the entire architecture of her highly fashionable wig and ends at her chestThis display was only allowed at the time because she had herself depicted by the painter as mythological figure. This portrait so beautifully combines certain coquetry along with the personal statement that the young lady has been on classical educational journey. 

Wildstyle Eastern Star

Edition 1 of 1

Credited as the originator of Chinese wildstyle, Jahan veered from writing in English to crafting his wildstyle in Mandarin in 2002. Jahan does not know if he started Chinese wildstyle but he is now associated with that look. This artwork features Jahan’s Chinese name (羅傑瀚)in his inimitable style. For two years Jahan laboured to translate his wildstyle into 3D sculpturehis name buried in the complexity of the strokes.

the odyssey of self reflection

Edition 1 of 1

searching for who am led me here, chaos swallowed everything around me and now i embrace it. Searching for your true self is one of the hardest things human can do.

As the gardener passed, the garden grew wild, the energy of life invigorated in an attempt to replace that has been lost. She stands there overwhelmedamong all the chaos her father has sown. The question on her mind: “How will be able to do this on my own?” The garden answers: “You don’t have to do it alone” In memory of Corné van Delft Faber (1966 – 2022). friend and mentor.

The Rare: Manipulation 6

Our first "rare" pick for The Good, The Bad, & The Rare, Johann Baron Lanteigne's "Manipulation 6" explores our modern relationship with screens.
1 week ago

For our inaugural The Rare selection, this week we’re drawing your attention to the recently minted, reality-bending “Manipulation 6” by Johann Baron Lanteigne. “Manipulation 6” is part of an animated series, Manipulations, by Lanteigne about gestures, their expressiveness and imperfections.

“I’m interested in the relationship we have with screens,” Lanteigne told SuperRare Magazine, “and how screens are portals to virtual worlds. This process is quite clunky right now, quite underdeveloped, so I like to play with it, to experiment with a possible future.”

A blend of textures – liquid, glass shards, wood and “shitty duct tape in the background” – “Manipulation 6” was presented in episode 41 of Adult Swim’s “Off the Air,” and created to be displayed as a seamless loop on 16×9 4k displays in both vertical and horizontal orientations.

“This piece was inspired by the unexpected, the unwanted surprise (not in a negative way),” Lanteigne said. “I tried to explore the inability to grasp virtual matter that I’m currently exploring within this series.”

The Bad: Heroes & Tyrants

The Bad: Heroes & Tyrants

This offensive, conspiracy-heavy NFT project sent the SR Mag team reeling when it landed it in our inbox.
1 week ago

Quotes in this article were taken from a defunct project website that now redirects to Heroes & Tyrants. The original COVID Bad People site is still readable through the Wayback Machine.

 

Described as “a new NFT & cryptocurrency project that commodifies the debts to society owed by the perpetrators and bullies of the greatest fraud in modern history: COVID-19,” Heroes & Tyrants, originally called COVID Bad People, is the brainchild of someone named Jay Revelle, apparently a Canadian living in Japan, whose Instagram (linked on the Heroes & Tyrants site) states he is an “individualist, non-conformist, matrix killer, biz thinker, meat eater.” His profile is rife with conspiracy, boasting self-stylized educational images reading “Why lying is communistic” and “Why I think anthropogenic climate change and global warming is a lie,” as well as t-shirts of his own design flashing the slogan, “Freedom Makes Me Cum.” 
Screenshot of the original COVID Bad People homepage.

Revelle’s shirts. Screenshot from his Instagram.

Heroes & Tyrants appears to be an extension of Revelle’s tin-hat revolution. Composed of a series of “bonds,” in practice each is essentially a trading card featuring the image of a public figure associated with COVID-19 policy. Heroes & Tyrants claims it will somehow make these doctors, politicians, and NGO professionals pay for their “bullying,” as the project’s website puts it, in the form of “karmic law.” Of course, no one can force these figures to cough up cash, so Revelle’s strategy is thus: by minting these debts to society as NFTs, the token’s owners will profit from a record of supposed COVID misdoings, and that record will live on the blockchain for all to see. Or something like that.

When I first investigated the project, OpenSea only showed six owners between two Heroes & Tyrants collections, and most of that ownership resulted from transfers as opposed to sales–evidently the greater NFT space did not see value in Revelle’s choice to style each public figure in the manner of the anti-semetic lizard people conspiracy. And while there is plenty to critique about Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, depicting him as a racist caricature of a black man perhaps alienated viewers from the project, too. The name was changed to Heroes and Tyrants to reflect new NFTs in the collection, ones highlighting people seen as heroes of the movement like Alex Jones, whose crowning achievement is being the subject of this meme. Only time will tell if this draws followers of these extremist figures to the project.

More content from Revelle’s Instagram
The distinct lack of interest that Heroes & Tyrants has drawn calls into question whether or not the planned DAO and token will ever come to fruition. The website also links to a Discord server and references the prospect of commemorative t-shirts for NFT holders–yes, you too can wear your conspiracy theory as fashion! This is the power of “a synergy of the crypto community’s growing calls for decentralization and the freedom movement’s calls for less government overreach.” I first became aware of the project when Revelle pitched it to SuperRare Magazine several months ago, asking for publicity. Initially, the whole thing seemed like a scam, an attempt to rug Q Anon stragglers for their ETH. After diving in, I think it’s probably genuine. And while it’s easy to joke about the absurdity of conspiracy theories, the last decade has revealed their staying power when coupled with Web2’s corporate social media platforms–let’s not forget the Cambridge Analytica scandal, the tip of of the iceberg when it comes to the misappropriation of user data for political means. Regardless of whether or not radicalization occurs because of a platform’s algorithm or because of communities enabled by a platform, as tempting as it is to laugh at these people, there’s also no denying the harm they do by spewing disinformation. As of writing, the World Health Organization estimates that 6 million lives have been taken by COVID-19 world-wide, and people like Revelle are wallowing in grotesque fantasy. Here’s the publicity he wanted, I guess.

The Good: a tweet from Sarah Zucker

Pobody's nerfect.

1 week ago

Human beings are drawn to patterns. One of our great strengths as a species is our ability to make inferences and assumptions based on past information. It’s normal to be apprehensive in the face of something new. It’s a lot of work to challenge things we “already know to be true,” and we often take the path of least resistance. That’s why it’s easier to cling to what we know than to embrace something untested, even if it carries the chance of being exponentially more rewarding in the future.

Confirmation bias is a tactic we use to verify things we think we already know, whether or not the facts line up. Like when one reads a headline saying “blockchain is bad for the environment” and accepts that as truth rather than doing research to find out if it’s true (it’s not—it’s nuanced).

Like when one says crypto is just another place for privileged white dudes to make money, rather than a thriving community-driven industry composed of people from all backgrounds, from all over the world.

Like when people see crypto as a bunch of risky assets, rather than tools with which to build a more just world (smart contracts, DAOs, and de-fi, we’re talking about you!).

 

This tweet from Sarah Zucker deftly thumbs its nose at the retiring spirit that is all too eager to chalk up blockchain tech and its associated endeavors with the past misdeeds of Silicon Valley and other corporate giants. No, nobody’s perfect, but would you rather live in Zuckerberg’s metaverse, or in one built by a bunch of coders, writers, and activists who turned down job offers from Google?

Onwards and upwards 🚀
