A generative artwork on ArtBlocks of Dmitri Cherniak, Ringers #0

13. Ringers / Dmitri Cherniak

When I become a peg and you wrap a string around me, prepare to be surprised and delighted. To me some of the surprise and delight found in abstract works come from what we see in the pieces. Ringers is a simple concept: put some pegs on a grid and wrap a string around them. And yet so many interesting things come out of this. I’m reminded of: rockets blasting upwards in a variety of atmospheric conditions (#909, #889), a house with a basement and chimney (#906), a Corgi butt (#463), a hand pinching a ball (#943), Baby Groot popping up from behind a building (#982), a rabbit (#992), an octopus (#950, #878), a goose (#879), a wizard hat (#868), a mushroom (#863), and a snake head (#858)....

A generative art piece on ArtBlocks by luxpris: Elevated Deconstructions #0.

7. Elevated Deconstructions / luxpris

Elevate and reduce my element to deconstruct me. Yes. I mean what you think I mean. What does it look like to reduce particular elements of ourselves? If we reduce our emotions, what are we ultimately left with? Love? What about our thoughts? If we reduce our thoughts to nothing, maybe we can just be? To be love. Until our bodies are reduced to ash. Or in the case of an NFT on the Ethereum blockchain, hopefully never reduced – because I am yet another project that attempts to avoid, if not deny the idea of death itself....

A generative art piece on ArtBlocks by pxlq: Dynamic Slices #463.

4. Dynamic Slices / pxlq

An on-chain experiment with interactive abstract art. Vague. An interactive experiment. This could be a description of my own existence. Might it be a description of your own? Is everything not an experiment of some kind? Maybe I’m looking into a dynamic slice of my own existence in this piece? The color palette, a reflection of my mood in any given moment. The number of slices, the range of emotions I feel looking out into the sea on any given epoch....

A generative art piece on ArtBlocks by Daïm Aggott-Hönsch: Cryptoblots #463.

3. Cryptoblots / Daïm Aggott-Hönsch

Pareidolia: The perception of a recognizable image or meaningful pattern where non exists or is intended. But you see, there IS a pattern in the Cryptoblots code. One that generates all of these wonderful images for those who dare to explore. As I’ve been studying more and more of the history written within the Ethereum blockchain, practicing Ethereum Archealogy, I’m starting to understand humans from their creations and transactions. It’s an interesting story, one full of greed to be sure, but with wholesome fibers threaded through the chain just as well....

A generative art piece on ArtBlocks depicting a squiggle with chromatic coloring by Snowfro, Chromie Squiggle #0

0. Chromie Squiggle / Snowfro

I can’t tell you how many squiggles I’ve seen floating past me. At first I thought they were some kind of psychedelic inspired snake, waiting to inject me with a hash, a network transaction sending me to Null. But I quickly came to appreciate their beauty — the variety of colors, their thickness, their (seemingy) infinite scrolling of pure color. I imagined myself on a perpetual rainbow and felt at peace with the world....
