VOICES OF WEB3 is an archive of voices and statements summarising the year 2023 in digital art and culture. It is a document in time on the blockchain, bringing together some of the leading voices shaping Web3 and the history of digital art: artists, curators, and collectors.
THE VOICE GEMS
The statements have been recorded in the form of spoken word, poems, and songs by the contributors and are frozen in time as VOICE GEMS on the blockchain. The VOICE GEMS were created by Harry Yeff (Reeps100) and Trung Bao, who have developed a voice-centred generative system utilizing data found in a human voice to synthesise the form and colour of the artwork.
Every voice is unique, and with that comes unique fingerprint-like data. Features like pitch, resonance, harmonics, and pace sculpt particle data points in a simulated digital space.
"Our museum has shown several exhibitions and programs about NFTs over the last three years, starting with 'Proof of Art', a short history of NFTs, the first museum exhibition on the topic. Since then, we've exhibited, for example, Herbert W. Frank's 'Visionary' and made 'The Space', a group show about virtual land. We've also held many exhibitions at our virtual Francisco Carolinum in Voxels, since its opening in April 21. My colleagues have learned a bit about NFTs in this time. More and more, Web3 is becoming an important topic in our society. NFTs have established themselves in the international art world. Public museums have begun to collect digital art and NFTs in particular, they have moved a great step closer to the present and are gradually orientating their work towards the future."
