WHAT IS ART?
This is a question that most of us, and many art professionals even, find difficult to answer.
In Wikipedia, art is explained as follows:
Art is a diverse range of human activities in creating visual, auditory or performing artifacts (artworks), expressing the author’s imaginative, conceptual ideas, or technical skill, intended to be appreciated for their beauty or emotional power.
My personal add to this would be that art mirrors the world of the time of creation. Whichever piece of art we take into evaluation, we can find the artist’s surrounding world through their work.
But how could we mirror then this digital, invisible and intangible world we live in today?
VALUE MANIFESTO, the first crypto multiple and a pioneer art project in today’s blockchain era created by Timo Niemeyer, has found an unique way to mirror today’s world.
After becoming involved in this project, I cannot help but wonder: What comes to the invisible concepts, online communication, shared economy models and manifesting against the outdated authorities, is this the perfect reflection of today?
Have a look at the project yourself at VALUE MANIFESTO’S WEBSITE and wonder with me!
