1. What would Alice do?
No matter what Alice decides to do, virtual artist Jonathan Zawada is often seeking to create tangible artefacts of transient, ephemeral virtual experiences that would take you to another space and dimension. In this post, Jonathan announces his ‘Indecisive Predisposition’ project taking part in Sydney’s 3D NFT exhibition. Centred around the intersection and blend between the artificial and the natural, Zawada’s world is hyperreal, delicate and intricately detailed, as well as bold and dynamic.
2. Art Dubai’s NFT game is strong
Yousha Bashir has created an immersive panorama that deceitfully escapes the frames of the booth only to manifest back into three screens mounted on the walls. Alireza Asadi engages more familiarly with retro-futurism, drawing the viewer into a nostalgic era of amusement arcades and their electro-mechanical video game machines. This is part of the NFTation as part of #ArtDubaiDigital featuring Yoush Bashir and Alireza Asadi.
3. Art can walk
Instagram remembers this moment from 2018 as historical masterworks come alive at the annual Halloween parade in Kawasaki, Japan. Picasso’s “The Weeping Woman,” Vincent van Gogh’s self-portrait, Johannes Vermeer’s “Girl with a Pearl Earring,” Leonardo da Vinci’s “Mona Lisa,” Edvard Munch’s “The Scream” the art world’s favourite botched masterpiece. Costume wearers presented themselves as the subjects of the famous paintings from the waist up, with fishnet stockings and heels from the waist down.
4. Mirror, Mirror on the wall, you’re the biggest of them all
