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.
"I feel so lucky. It is not every day that we can experience the birth of a new era in the art world. Thanks to Web3, digital art now sparks excitement and wonder, breathing life into the art industry. Once hidden and not really understood, digital art now thrives. Globally, artists unite and support each other through art collecting. With a good mix of fun, meaning, and innovation, they celebrate and care on a daily basis.
Digital art curators enjoy a newfound freedom and are blooming in their field. Museums finally start to embrace digital art, bridging the physical and virtual realms. But it's important to remember that the preservation of digital art is still at stake, and we should support the many who are working on it.
Here and Now, I believe we can create a future where digital art knows no boundaries and leaves a lasting impact for generations to come. So let’s not forget what we learned and lived together and cherish it for the years to come, even in the middle of winter."
