Voices of Web3
VOICE GEMS x OONA
View the collection on OpenSea.
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.
Founding Questions of the OONAVERSE
I fucking hate this industry
1. How do we measure progress: in technology or ways of seeing?
Its strife with mediocre ambition
2. Which is the container for–identity–the physical, the mental, or the cybernetic
Sometimes I think that there is nothing new here and we are lying to ourselves thinking that we are discovering something new
3. What is power?
Sometimes I laugh
4. What is pleasure?
Sometimes my entire practice goes over their fucking heads
5. What is good art?"
