- The artist is increasingly interested in light, approach and sacred geometry.
Otherworldly, a breathtaking experience in developed and virtual reality, seems to be all the rage in the art world, and a new project by Olafur Eliasson is excitedly following a lawsuit. Using advanced immersion tools, the Danish-Icelandic artist is increasingly interested in light, approach and sacred geometry.
As a member of the new digital project named “Your View Matter”, which turns out to be a hypnotic virtual reality experience, Eliasson, the Bob Ross of light art who experienced climate change, will also strike in the province of NFTs. As possible proof of its scale and purpose, the project is licensed by Vignesh Sundaresan, popularly known as Metakovan, the art collector and early crypto engineer. They generously paid Christine $69.3 million in 2021 for Beeple’s Everyday: The First 5,000 Days.
The digital project, accessible free of charge with a Virtual Reality headset thanks to a partnership with Acute Art, is presented today September 5 on yourviewmatter. art. It will be added to Eliasson’s vital exhibition at the Palazzo Strozzi in Florence from September 22 this year.
The experience includes a moving color box of shapes – from the tetrahedron, octahedron, icosahedron, dodecahedron and cube – that can be arranged in real architectural spaces.
“Making the virtual world the world of investigation personified is one of my deep interests,” Eliasson said in a media interview about the project, which he has been involved in for six years. “Your View Matters asks you to physically understand how technologies intertwine with our ability to see and create what we see.”
NFT will be released with polkadot
At the end of this month, a non-fungible token of the Hypnotic Project will be produced. In line with Eliasson’s concerns about climate change, he chooses to release his NFT with Polkadot, a good, greener version of Ethereum.
Metakovan spoke to Artnet News, in which he said he believes the NFT world, after the current market crash, is confident for growth, and perhaps the artist is leading the way. “The creator economy is being overhauled by crypto,” Metakovan explained. “Digital art is an important factor in this.”
Daniel Birnbaum, the art director of Acute Art, a company that runs AU and VU artworks, told the Art Newspaper that at that time many artists might have been a little dubious about exploring the space. NFT because of the legal and environmental interest, that new technologies can be used later concepts in art.
In April, Palazzo Strozzi also managed a project by NFT superstar prodigy Refik Anandol, data-driven machine understanding algorithms were released on everything from MoMA image records to medical and scientific sources.
