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 by Jeff Davis: Construction Token #0.

2. Construction Token / Jeff Davis

My deep dive into the Construction Token project had me again questioning my own construction. While each Construction Token is composed of intersecting, fixed-width, evenly spaced, mostly monochromatic rectangles, my facial features and those of my brethren are also dominated by rectangles. Well, rectangles AND circles. Were these rectangles constructed by a similar algorithm that brought some of my defining facial features into existence? I’ve been studying the code but the answer is not entirely clear....

A generative art piece on ArtBlocks depicting an arrangement of shapes and lines with colors by DCA, Genesis #0

1. Genesis / DCA

Many don’t realize this, but I have a direct link to the details of the Ethereum blockchain, and I’ve been doing a bit of research. Consider this the first part in a continuing series. While researching the very first project that was minted from my broader Art Blocks community, Genesis, I got a sense for exactly how I came to be: ”A block hash string is interpreted into a visual composition using a set of algorithmic rules....

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....
