VerticalCrytpo Art Pop-up at Lume Studios

VerticalCrypto Art Speaks to the Future at Lume Studios in New York

“ART & NFT: The Digital Roots,” a one-day pop-up exhibition in New York at Lume Studios, took place yesterday ahead of Frieze New York. Curated by VerticalCrypto art, a leading curatorial media studio, in partnership with Whitewall and the energy-efficient blockchain Tezos, the exhibition of 12 leading-edge artists on LED monitors and captivating projections embellished the two-floor space.

To celebrate the pop-up, 200 visitors gathered to take in the show, as well as a panel of speakers and leaders in the NFT field: art and tech advisor Fanny Lakoubay; founder of the Museum of Crypto Art, Colborn Bell; curator and Director of Volta Art Fair, Kamiar Maleki, artist Skye Nicolas; and Vertical Crypto Art founder, Micol Ap.

Digital works on view were created by artists like Helena Sarin, P1Xelfool, Skye Nicolas, Damjanski, Linda Dounia, Nicolas Sassoon, Lia Something, Loren Bednar, Leander Herzog, Rose Jackson and Jana Styblova.

Nicolas’s Children of A Digital Sun, is a series of luminous, hypnotic digital floral works inspired by the Assembly Theory: a concept which aims to capture the biological signature of life by examining information structures, the intricacies of replication, and the idea of simple machines building more complex machines.

Dounia’s colorful Yasmine’s Goo explores the mutability of our conception of reality, created by layering footage from a variety of sources. The base layer is a handmade geometric pattern in motion. The following layers are AI-generated latent walk videos from a model trained with abstract acrylic paintings by the artist. Finally, footage of evolving color gradients give the piece its colors. Light leaks are used to signal shifts in perspective and guide the eye through the changing states of the piece.

Sassoon’s MOLDORM is a digital animation using a moiré pattern technique, consisting in the overlap of two images to create the illusion of a third image. The imaging process is used to produce optical patterns on geometric shapes and motifs; Four green spheres appear to waver above a pulsating violet background. The artwork is informed by the op-art of Victor Vasarely who often incorporated spheres in his printed works and tapestries to generate impressions of depth and motion.

“It’s always an honor to be part of a panel that discusses the challenges and future of the digital space. Coming from the traditional art world it is exciting to see the interest and creativity in this field. What VerticalCrypto does to curate its shows and sales is exactly what this industry needs,” said Maleki.
