Mat Collishaw and the Genetic Algorithms, Agnieszka Cichocka, δημοσίευση στο DailyArt Magazine [6/3/2023]
Snark.art and OG.Art have announced Heterosis, a groundbreaking art collection and immersive metaverse experience brought to life by established contemporary artist Mat Collishaw and renowned digital artist Danil Krivoruchko, in partnership with metaverse architects EL-GABAL.
Heterosis: Metaverse Garden
Heterosis allows users to hybridize and cultivate bespoke animated digital flowers that grow in a hyperrealistic metaverse garden.
The project features two major components: a collection of breedable, dynamic NFT flora and the “Greenhouse,” an extraordinary virtual reimagining of London’s National Gallery after the apocalypse. All the digital flowers in the collection grow in their current forms among the abandoned, overgrown remnants of this historic building.
Using innovative technology, the artwork invites collectors to play an adventurous game while simultaneously questioning the fundamentals of the blockchain space as a whole. Heterosis could not exist in any context other than the blockchain, relying as it does on multiple participants bringing the artwork to fruition.
In an interview, Mat Collishaw (b. 1966) shares the story behind the project, where he finds inspiration for his artworks, and how he uses technology in his art.
