Capturing impermanence forever
Our team at Formless Creature DAO along with Urbanism Summit, Bakehouse Art Complex, and four uber-talented contemporary artists worked together to create the ultimate middle finger to the right-clicker argument on the value of ownership and the capture of beauty in our always-changing world.
ARCHIVISTS OF THE EPHEMERAL, NEVER OWNERS OF THE TANGIBLE.
Artists will create a mural using the same wall inside the Bakehouse Art Complex — located in the Wynwood Art District. Each work will only be on display for 24 hours (this includes the time used by the artist to create), then erased successively by the next artist.
Now Impermanence in our physical reality is a gateway to immortality in the metaverse. The Projects Team will work to capture the work of each of these artists taking a variety of content in a multitude of formats and creating a one-of-a-kind NFT that has never been seen before. Visitors to the murals as well as those following online will be able to experience the creation of each work and then bid to own the experience on the blockchain.
The event runs from December 2 through the 5th at BAKEHOUSE ART COMPLEX — 561 NW 32nd St. Miami, FL 33127 and is open for public viewing only from the hours of 6 to 9 pm. If you are here at Art Basel we welcome you to join us any evening!
Our artists have all approached this project with such enthusiasm, generosity, and thoughtfulness, their work is stunning and deserves to live on forever.
