ROA Series On @KnownOrigin | From Painted to Corrupted!
Minting my multi-layered mixed-media pieces on KnownOrigin as NFTs. This little series of 15 images started its life off as paintings… but even before I glitch my artwork my paintings already look somewhat corrupted because of the way I lather paint generously and dynamically over the surface. I’ve been painting…
Intermedia art created an opening for the current state of the arts and, as a digitally native Intermedia artist, it feels completely natural for me to experiment within this platform… be it with digital art, data, performances, happenings and even Fluxus boxes!
For the past few years, since 2017, I've been making social media happenings on Instagram and Twitter.
As an Intermedia artist, I found the prospect of using social media platforms, just like the Blockchain, as an exciting method of expressing myself through visual happenings which either utilise text, digital stickers, images or some form of visual poetry.
The world of social media is now our streets, an open book and a place to create fun and inventive methods of self expression, engagement and ‘drama’. Maybe many will see it happen or maybe no one will. The whole point is that it happens. Something that is thrust into the metaverse of existence. No major plans need to be made, no massive budgets… just an attempt. Just some words.
What if the ‘Tree of Knowledge’ wasn’t a tree at all?
What if it is still to exist?
‘Sentience’  will drop on KnownOrigin June 4th at 18:00.
‘Sentience’ is part of my ‘L1l1’ project. Which, in turn, is part of a larger body of work called ‘Visions From Al-Asiia’ aka ‘Aphrodite’s Spaceship/Ishtar’s Space Pod’ [2019-21]. The project explores what freedom means far into the future through the mechanical body.
