Between 2021 and 2023, I was rather active and enjoyed experimenting on several Tezos NFT platforms. This is a list of currently available works (via objkt.com).
Works, series and collections on the different Tezos platforms that emerged during that period:
TXTILES - on Teia
Between April and November 2021 these 200 pieces were released in several batches. Although I consider them as one work, they can be subdivided in several mini-series: I (1-4), II (5-8), III (9-16), IV (17-20), V (21-24), VI (25-34), VII (35-44), VIII (45, 66, 146), IX (46-51), X (52-55), XI (56-65), XII (67-76), XIII (77-86), XIV (87-100), XV (101-105), XVI (106-110), XVII (112-121), XVIII (122-127), XIX (128-146), XX (147-156), XXI (157-162), XXII (163-184), XXIII (185-197), XXIV (198-200). The current event is a good opportunity to bring certain of these mini-series into the spotlight again, with the focus on the 1/1s.
Teia is still the first platform popping up in my mind when I want to mint a new work that is not a part of a series.
Versatiles - Originally on Versum (went down in 2023), now still available on objkt
This series was on Versum between 2022 and end of 2023. The platform went unfortunately down end of 2023. Existing works can still be seen and traded on other Tezos platforms like objkt.
It is the higher resolution continuation of the TXTILE series on Teia. If you look closely you will see different sub series. Versatile 71-85 for example were especially created for the 1/1 event in July 2022 and carefully selected among 8O pieces initially produced during a 'Tickle' session with my Behringer B-control Rotary connected to a processing sketch.
More detailed information about this series.
Several collections on Objkt.com:
Closer A set of 36 monochrome formscapes, close ups from a series of digital works I made some years ago.
Spoken 36 ghostly scenes: two circles and a mess of shapes.
The Veiled Doorway
The Veiled Doorway A series of 14 images created by using the text ‘The Veiled Doorway’ and its German translation (Die Verhüllte Pforte).
JamesNoise is a triple custom font play with 1.726.112 characters in 18 chapters. In celebration of Ulysses by James Joyce written 100 years ago.
Niku is slow generative sketch made with processing and the HYPE library by the magnificent Joshua Davis. I use it as a painting/drawing machine that also puts me in the role of a photographer. The aim is to snap the ‘best’ shots.
After I play/learn/enjoy tweaking parameters, I sit with one finger on a button, listen to music and disappear in the simple tumbling of these two people in space.
Niku challenges me to shoot/select and ask the annoying question why one image output 'works' and an another not. Niku plays with my mood. Currently 34 pieces.
Kant is a series of 14 that started by simply typing characters on typed.art. I copied the 7 typed sketches, put them in my custom fonts HSP 2 & 3 and enlarged them on a 2000x2000px canvas as big as possible avoiding a return to the next line. Then I repeated the pattern vertically and symmetrically to fill the blank space of the canvas. Finally I turned the result 90°. Kant is a German philosopher. In Dutch it means ‘Lace’. :)
People do is a growing series based on an old Flash sketch from 2007. Sixteen years later Flash is dead but I still can play with that magic box whatever, however and whenever I want. I can feed the animation whatever photo I want and it will recreate the photo with my human figures based on the color data in the photo. Resulting in a grid of nervously flapping human figures performing the photographic image through their assigned colors. The output format now is GIF made with GIMP.
Twee - on 8bidou.com
For this platform I created 'Twee', a series of 156 figure couples based on HSP1, a custom font I very often use to produce digital art. You could consider this as an ironic, 24x24px, black and white PFP project.
Typedup - on typed.art
The newest kid on the Tezos block. My first 10 works on this new platform are all 1/1s. I played/experimented with my hands-up logo. The whole series was made in two days much like you would sketch on a paper with a newly discovered tool.
Hash People - on fxhash
Hash_people simply places all characters of the fxhash in a tight grid and set in a custom font (HSP1). Only some characters have bright colors: there is a red cat, blue dogs, an orange rabbit, a yellow Hansup, purple and green robots, white numbers and the grey zero.
