VOICE GEMS x Laurence Fuller

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.
"The sun did fall,
A myth of love hid amongst the wreckage.
Watching over it all,
A snow owl soared above,
He saw a ring of smoldering hot ash,
Which burned a hole in the garden,
Though there was beneath the seed of a fig,
A delicacy for happy pigs,
Planted some time ago,
Found by the banks of a river.
Buried in earth,
Pulsating tenebrous glow,
Its blood rose up to the surface.
Where hummingbirds swarmed like locusts,
And an army of fauns pounded their fists.
The sky itself had traveled the world in a day just to witness,
Steam that swelled into a storm. 🥀🔥"
