Early collectors of painting from ‘portrait of a Mind’ include Bloq chairman Matthew Rozsak and Binance founder Changpeng Zhao. Alice showcased and sold an NFT at Christie’s. Thus, he hoped that it would be a spur to other contemporary artists to look at the NFT space.
Creative inspiration artists can draw from cryptocurrencies’ politically dynamic, complex cultural, and technical history. Also, NFT can give artists more control and a better stake in their practice over the long term.
Cointelegraph reported, just last week, on the auction of a digital art piece based upon Bitcoin’s fluctuating price action, which sold for over a hundred thousand dollars. The artwork integrated an NFT to vest its collector with tokenized ownership rights, like ‘Portrait of Mind.’
Robert Alice is an art historian-turned-blockchain artist. He thinks that the Bitcoin codebase is a culturally and politically significant piece of history of 21-century.
Portrait of a Mind
Christie’s will sell its first nonfungible token in an upcoming auction. It is the ‘the largest artwork’ in the history of Bitcoin (BTC).
Art historian that turned to blockchain artist, Robert Alice, created a ‘Portrait of a Mind.’ So, it is a monumental series of forty paintings stretching over fifty meters in length.
Drawing of the founding myth of Bitcoin’s creation and the history of the 20th century, ‘Portrait of a Mind’ is a complete hand-painted transcription of the 1.23 million digits of the code. Those are codes of digits that launched the cryptocurrency.
The project scatters the codebase into forty globally distributed fragments. Also, it will draw up a global network of 40 collectors where no individual will hold all the code. That is what Robert Alice said. Many people wait for the exhibition.
An algorithm found a set of hex digits in each work. Those sets of coordinates are unique to each painting.
That is the information about original creation.
