Throughout the history of art,
artists have tried to capture the world around them, the events they care about, the feelings they experience.
The first cave paintings represented hunting animals, the first sculptures represented birth, the first expressionists described the emotions they felt.
Behind every piece of art there is some idea,
even if the artist mindlessly draws the first thing that comes to his mind. Even the controversial world of NFT, often criticized by art historians, is actually a true reflection of today's culture.
Any piece of art is a reflection of the era in which it was created,
and all artists sometimes consciously sometimes unconsciously in one way or another reflect those events that are exciting to them. For example, NFTs with poop speak of a moment in time in which people have become so self-ironic that it has become perfectly normal to buy poop just for fun. NFTs with stones as the first NFTs ever created on blockchain have not only historical value but also artistic value as the two concepts are inseparable. Cryptopunks are true portraits of the founding fathers, and so on.
But what if a historical event only happened digitally?
How to depict something that was invisible to the human eye, because it was essentially an execution of software code, but had tremendous historical significance?
And that's what the BLOCK-01 collection is about.
A generative art collection that depicts the birth of blockchain and the first 11 days and 11 hours of its life.
