Poster image for immaterial 非物質

Statement:

NFTs have been roaring over the world since 2021, and artists who work in NFT projects now are ambitious to demonstrate that digital existences gain values like physical goods. In the near future, the eternality of digital lives will be equal to the eternality of any human heritages. Unless being burnt, NFTs minted on blockchains will be alive forever.

While the real world is still ruled by the post-pandemic chaos, NFTs and the vision of metaverse light up the darkness and liberate creators. Projects aiming to support public interests and eliminate discrimination are gaining popularity. What mindsets and digital existences shape the metaverse is a critical question today, or, how do we build the metaverse? Based on what “materials”?

In the “immaterial 非物質” NFT exhibition, 10 artists propose a metaverse that is not constructed by physical objects. There are no clothes, avatars, lands, or houses in the metaverse, rather, the “immaterials” like memories, dreams, religions, human-earth relationships, cross-cultural experiences....

Although many projects in immaterial 非物質 are at a very early stage, by retrieving their spiritual experiences IRL and embodying critical thinking, artists in this exhibition seek to transcend NFTs to technological liberation. “immaterial 非物質” exhibition is curated by digital media artist UGLYKIKI, this NFT art exhibition will take place in New Art City and akaSwap throughout 2022/02/22 ~2022/03/22. akaSwap is the largest green NFT trading platform in Asia, by minting NFTs on eco-friendly blockchain like Tezos, “immaterial” and akaSwap hope to raise awareness about the ethical responsibilities of blockchain technology.

Simulation Sickness Mutual Support Association staged a protest rally at C128 Central Hall this morning (26), raising three major demands: Provide a 2D version of the universe, ensure the proportion of 2D Dapp, and eliminate the discrimination against pixel art. Up to now (10:35), this list has been expanded by the association members to a total of 64 terms. Passersby raised concerns about the video being pre-recorded. Catslooover3355, a committee member of Jizheng Party, also published a post on his personal DP, ridiculing them as “genes that should be eliminated” According to the president of the association, this protest will cause them to lose about 3 X coins of PAE income, which is approximately 34 hours of their operation cost. 3D暈互助協會的靜坐抗議,可是這樣算坐著嗎?

The Gaze From Afar, The World & The Self (I) 向望.世界.我 (之一)

YUN珮芸

The overall composition of the "Gaze" series seems unreasonable, such as the humongous sun and moon, and the fact that there is always a lonely little human being in the picture, overlooking from afar... He could be standing in the clouds, he could be standing on water, he could be on the moon... But wherever he is, he is pulled away... Perhaps, only when we can really have a look at the world, then we can feel the most authentic self and peace... ”向望”這個系列, 整體的畫面結構都是不合常理的,碩大的太陽,月亮……畫面中永遠會出現一個孤獨的小人,遠遠的眺望….可能是站在雲端,可能是站在水面,抑或可能是在月亮上…..但不管在哪裡,卻都是抽離的….或許,我們反而可以在看著這個世界的同時,感受到最真實的自我與平靜...

14:01 Glimpse, TimeBlock

Lu, Chieh-Hua 呂玠樺

"In a period of continuous time, I attempted to find an image I had never seen in the metaverse. Continuously pressing the Refresh button in a seemingly unconscious mode, I was hoping to see it at some point in time. At 14:01, an image appeared on the screen, bringing me out of apathy and into awareness. This, I think, is the authentic component of the interaction between the real and the virtual. At this moment, I entered a parallel world in time and space. The first piece of the TimeBlock series is 14:01 Glimpse, which means that I recorded this piece at the moment of 14:01 on a certain day. The time parameters, visual imagination, and emotions recorded at this particular moment could not be re-generated or altered. These characteristics resemble those of the immaterial in my imagination, visible yet invisible; accessible yet unattainable. At this moment in time and space, I realized that I stepped into my own metaverse. - TimeBlock NFT Series TimeBlock series was the result of a creative experiment in one afternoon when I wandered through the world of blockchain. TimeBlock transforms the concept of time and block generation into the concept of visual art that remains constant. Utilizing the technology of AI-generated art of Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs), developed rapidly in the field of machine learning in recent years, the creative process randomly generated algorithmic art that is conscious, immaterial, and virtual.

Lu, Chieh-Hua 呂玠樺

"For the next 20 minutes or so after 14:01, I began to explore and see if a similar, repetitive, and replicable encountering with a visual image would occur. If such a similar encounter did eventually occur, I think it was at 14:23. Every interaction is unique to a particular moment, after which it is no longer attainable. Was this my creative work? Was it someone else's work? Or was it created by us together? It feels both real and unreal, just like the digital world. The metaverse that we have been searching for may have existed a long time ago; it may have come into being at the moment when we first encountered the other person behind the screen, however unreal it may have felt. The second piece of the TimeBlock series is 14:23 Quest, which means that I recorded this piece at the moment of 14:23 on a certain day. I tried to find something new in my own universe, I had seen many elements, components, and compositions in this interactive process but had not felt a sense of closeness or familiarity. Indeed, this immaterial universe existed as early as when I first used the Internet. I entered it when I hit the first key on the keyboard. - TimeBlock NFT Series TimeBlock series was the result of a creative experiment in one afternoon when I wandered through the world of blockchain.

"For a long while after 14:23, I did not find the portal through which a similar interaction could happen again. I anticipated its reappearance as I knew, based on the deconstruction, reorganization, and reconstruction of algorithmic generation, I would surely encounter it again when the time was right. Finally, at 14:57 when the conditions of algorithmic generation that I was searching for re-emerged, we were able to encounter each other again. The third piece of the TimeBlock series is 14:57 Anticipation, which means that I recorded this piece at the moment of 14:57 on a certain day. This creative piece, without a creator, did not exist before this moment. If it was now possible for it to come into being, then the creative process, the interaction between the creator and algorithm-generated art at this moment, could only be recorded through the immaterial metaverse. Come to my universe and let me tell you how this creation came to be. Just as I look forward to encountering the creative process again, I look forward to meeting you. - TimeBlock NFT Series TimeBlock series was the result of a creative experiment in one afternoon when I wandered through the world of blockchain.

How we redefine and re-experience our memories - a way to re-create our own histories - can reconstruct new versions of ourselves in presence and near future. The human bodies are just like the boats of our souls and fates, which can let us experience physical realities and protect our spirits.

So remember it, as you feel lost sight in this adventure, just look inside your heart, there will have a path which can lead you go back to ‘Home’, the origin of our coexistence. Humankind is a creature motivated and limited by stories.

Free the Land

某某they/them

"Free the Land aims to challenge the current property ownership framework as well as emancipate land, houses, forests, and more for the benefit or interests of all humans and non-humans. As George Monbiot rightly said, “The current pattern of the ownership and control of land lies at the heart of many of our big dysfunctions - the collapse of wildlife and ecosystems, exclusion and marginalisation of many people, the lack of housing and public space in many cities.”  What if we could imagine and prototype a system in which we cannot freely transform wealth into power? What if money doesn’t necessarily translate into a right to own natural wealth? We need to move beyond the reductive, utilitarian relationship with the world and recognise the interrelationship among all things and beings. This is a contract between you and the world. It’s a promise to support the self-ownership of all civic and natural assets and not to extract, deplete, and instrumentalise them in any way. When you buy the artwork, you also sign the contract with the world. The artwork is an experiment of a more comprehensive project which aims to emancipate land for real through crowdsourcing sites, purchasing, emancipating, and stewarding land through legal and technological approaches in an open way. If you are interested in learning together, participating in land acquisition, writing smart contracts, exploring innovative and ethical governance models, deliberating on the use of the land for civic purposes, and being part of the action group, please join the Free the Land Discord: https://discord.gg/dFuufbBr44 ------------ Free the Land 作品在挑戰當現有的產權框架,旨在解放土地、房屋、森林等,以造福於所有人類與非人類。 正如 George Monbiot 所說:「從野生動物和生態系統的崩壞、排他與邊緣化,到許多城市的居住和公共空間的缺乏,目前土地所有權和控制土地的方式,正是上述這些問題的核心。」 我們可以想像、形塑一個我們不能隨意地將財富轉化為權力的系統,或者金錢不一定可以轉為擁有自然資產的權利。我們需要意識到與萬事萬物之間的相互依存,避免過於簡化、功利的關係。 這個作品,是你與萬事萬物之間的契約,承諾並支持自然資產的解放,不以任何方式壓榨、耗損、和利用他們。 當你購買藝術品時,你也與世界簽訂了契約。(購買作品的行為,就是簽署契約的行為,這個契約會綁著你的錢包地址,完成數位簽章。) 視覺上,土地漸漸被填滿,象徵著隨著契約的簽訂,他們一塊、一塊被解放。 這件作品是一個初期的實驗,未來會希望更進一步發展,讓土地、房子、森林等自然資產「擁有自己」,把土地所有權轉移到土地本身,因此再也無法被炒作、開採、破壞,這挑戰了以人類為中心的價值觀,進而把土地視為「公民」,有「權利」也有「義務」,並且這些權利、義務可以被寫在智能合約中去執行。希望未來能透過法規創新與科技應用,在真實世界中解放土地。如果你有興趣一起學習、參與找地、編寫智能合約、探索創新的治理模式、與土地共好,以及成為行動的一員,歡迎加入 Free the Land Discord: https://discord.gg/dFuufbBr44" Soundtrack: Karl Casey @ White Bat Audio Vocals: 某某they/them References: (1) NSC Creative, We Are Stars (2) Christopher D.

Noise Venus 雜訊維納斯

Che-Kuang Chuang 莊澤光

Miro Venus has been considered as the icon of Western aesthetics. However this beauty is not about its’ perfection but from the imagination of the unfinished. In contemporary aesthetics, the definition of beauty is no longer pure but has become mix-experience - quality of ""quantity"", desires from ""numbers"" and more diverse sensations. In the work of Noise Venus Artist Che-Kuang Chuang uses CG technology to transform the work of Miro Venus from original geometries into Voxel. It has become another digital unfinished shape and evolved into a new digital dynamic aesthetic." "米羅維納斯的一直以來被視為西方美學的頂點,而這份美感源自於對未完成的想像。而在當代美學裡,美的定義已不再純粹,變成一種複合的數據-”量”的質感、”數”的欲求以及更多元的體驗。雜訊維納斯這件作品以CG技術重新組構米羅維納斯這一作品,將原本的量體轉為體素(Voxel),成為另外一種數位的”未完成”,在打破古典比例的同時,重新賦予作品另外一種動態的數位美學。

To the Sun 奔日計畫

Che-Kuang Chuang 莊澤光

In this work Artist Che-Kuang Chuang wants to express his personal desire to the freedom during the pressure of Covid 19 outbreak- although this kind of desire is not responsible to the sociality and mother nature. The golden female sculptures inside the image represent the artist's situation-a body which was tied up by the epidemic prevention rules, but still want to run to the light and freedom." "奔日計畫是藝術家於Covid19台灣三級警戒期間內心的自我映射,為一件純美學表現的作品。以人造的地景表徵內心的邏輯思維,以虛幻動態的人體表現對自由的渴望,作為在Covid19封鎖期間對社會責任與內心慾望對立的呈現。

Seeing yourself in the crowd 群體中看見自己

Che-Kuang Chuang 莊澤光

In traditional society, people's personality is deeply bound to families.In the seemingly free contemporary society, self-conscious still strongly affected by the highly connected social media. Values, ideological context, and even the shaping of personal image all are reflections of the SNS community - while creating a self-image in the hearts of others, others are also creating our own images. While decentralizing, it is also creating another center." "傳統社會中,人格的塑造是與家庭緊密連結的;而在看似自由的當代社會裡,自我意識已被高度連結的社群媒體深深影響。價值觀、思想脈絡以至於個人形象的塑造,皆是在反映著社群的變化-打造他人心中自我形象的同時,他人也在打造我的自身形象。去中心化的同時,同時也在打造了另外一個中心。
