NFT interpretations of more minted items from my own incidental photography
Non Fungible Tokens (NFT-s) are having their big-bang moment.
Collectors and speculators have spent more than $200 million on an array of NFT-based artwork, memes and GIFs in the past month alone, according to market tracker NonFungible.com, compared with $250 million throughout all of 2020.
And that was before the digital artist Mike Winkelmann, known as Beeple, sold a piece for a record-setting $69 million at famed auction house Christie’s on March 11—the third highest price ever fetched by any living artist, after Jeff Koons and David Hockney.
So what is an artwork when it becomes an NFT - from an artistic point of view? 'It's the abstract version of the reality that was the original photographic image' in my opinion, and that is what is I have demonstrated in these images.
In my works, the title is also used to extend the parody beyond the visual
impact of the NFT - eg 'N_eff-Tee at the 4th' at Llanymynech (Gallery 3) where the Welsh
border cut off the English player from continuing play due to the pandemic.
"“I look at NFTs as being such a blank slate, even beyond digital art.” says Beeple and the question is therefore - how do YOU the viewer see my NFT-s on this site?
