CHROME by Kim Asendorf & Leander Herzog is a 128-channel real-time animation, coordinated by universal time (UTC). The NFT series plays with the potential of contemporary software and hardware, from generative real-time graphics and custom smart contracts, to displays with ever increasing resolution and quality. The on-chain software work responds to screen size and builds directly on the pixels of the specific display it runs on.
The 128-channel real-time animation is coordinated by universal time (UTC). It emerges from a continuous linear motion, interrupted by a choreography between rhythm and random. Every channel is offset one additional second into the future, based on the token id assigned by the custom smart contract. This relation becomes visible when multiple channels are running in a shared space. Compositions emerge and evolve at various regular intervals, without ever repeating. Once per hour the synchronization stops and all channels act individually, before they transition back to coordination.
