  • Giovanni Motta NFT | Gallery Func

    ​ Giovanni Motta NFT and meditation @The Cryptonomist Giovanni Motta is one of the Italian crypto artists who best embodies the epochal transition from physical art to the immaterial world of NFTs.

When he was only 9 years old, he won an international drawing competition organized by the FAO, but he had to wait until 2000 to exhibit his works in galleries and public spaces: drawings, paintings and 3D sculptures that reveal his passion for manga and anime, but also for American cartoons.

  • Peter Jeppson | Gallery Func

    INTERVIEW ​ Peter Jeppson On the hunt for complex emotions @ArtMaze Magazine 10 January 2018 The work of artist Peter Jeppson will steal you away from your own reality and have you placed in a world of his own creation, complex with his irresistibly curious characters. Bubbling with texture and vivid emotions, Jeppson's creatures put a new, strange twist on cartoons - as they are for from the cartoons you may be used to seeing on television. Instead, the artist paints his characters with complicated expressions that are not so easily understood, making them anything but one- dimensional. Jeppson's characters are creased not only two- dimensionally in paint, but are also brought into the third dimension in his densely layered and brilliantly peculiar sculpture. These somewhat humorous figures are interesting in a way that is just slightly off, leaving the complexity of the artist's work at its surface. Read More WORK OVERVIEW EXHIBITIONS ARTICLES

  • 副本 Emotional Autonomous Region | Gallery Func

    Emotional Autonomous Region When Crypto Meets Funeral & Wedding Artist: SHI Ruini Curator: MIAO Zijin Jun 30 - Jul 23 2022 INSTALLATION VIEWS WORKS ARTIST 施蕊妮 SHI Ruini SHI Ruini 「How should we present an inappropriate opening ceremony? 」This is the open question raised when the exhibition was initially conceived. Ruini Shi and her team present two virtual platforms named "FuneralPlay" and "LoveCounter" investigating whether a better and more friendly interactive experience could be achieved by users attending digital funerals and weddings if blockchain technology reaches certain maturity. De-centralized emotional service operations simulate "X-to-Earn", a reward mechanism of blockchain game. Participants invest in FuneralPlay in exchange for souvenirs in memory of the deceased (Play-to-Earn); likewise, the mourning time invested in FuneralPlay could be exchanged for souvenirs in memory of the deceased (Mourn-to-Earn). Lovers who sign LoveCounter, an intelligent marriage contract, will earn love Karma for the time they spend together online, the properties they contribute and the interactions between the two of them to trigger user-defined life events (Love-to-Earn). Are the new game rules in X-to-Earn for quantifying emotions sufficient to express true sadness or love? Can proof-of-love be delivered for cryptographic transactions? Emotional capitalism supported by Web 2.0, and in particular the dating software, have further standardized and commodified emotions. Through monitoring data generated by users with the assistance of algorithms lockchain-based Web 3.0 empowers users to take back ownership of their personal data from tech giants. What FuneralPlay and LoveCounter, the two interactive websites launched by the artist as conceptual and de-materialized media, produce are performative situations in which diverse values co-exist. Inspirations for scene constructions derive from creators' surveys and sampling of the identities and free will of their families and friends. Such non-fictional and unquantified data of emotions hereby collected attempt to draw an alternative collective portrait of contemporary youth. If "emotional autonomous region", which exists in parallel with the governance of the state or religion, is reckoned as one of the mental options for alleviating faith crisis, survival guide for the future may include a strategy of disappearance. In other words, escaping from the omnipresence of big data and managing our digital footprints at our own discretion have become an increasingly imperative urge. Within a closed system, encrypted funeral and wedding offer pathways for vulnerable individuals to cope with force majeure. When we reconnect with the real world, an inappropriate opening ceremony seems more like a ceremony of care, a scarce material in the contemporary context. Text / Miao Zijin

  • Den godhjaertade | Gallery Func

    INTERVIEW ​ Peter Jeppson DEN GODHJÄRTADE KONSTNÄREN @Artworks Peter Jeppson inledde sitt konstnärskap inom graffitikonsten som sedan ledde in honom på grafisk design och tog även vägen förbi illustration. Idag ägnar han sig mestadels åt måleri, och broderi. Peter har ställt ut i solo- och grupputställningar i Sverige, USA, Slovenien och Storbritannien. Hans verk är fyllda av välkända seriekaraktärer men istället för att försöka göra en så verklighetstrogen avbildning av dessa skapar han snarare “dåliga kopior” men som adderar nya drag och andra ansiktsuttryck eller sinnesstämningar än vad man är van vid att se hos karaktärerna.

  • Ruini Shi 虚拟空间的情绪存在方式 | Gallery Func

    INTERVIEW Ruini Shi 探讨虚拟空间的情绪存在方式 @Hi艺术 05 December 2021 Hi:为什么会想到做一个NFT项目?之前接触过NFT吗? ▼ 施:《FuneralPlay》并非一个NFT项目。《FuneralPlay》是一个非盈利性质的虚构殡葬供应平台。在这个概念项目里,我们邀请观众作为哀悼者参加一场模拟葬礼。 《FuneralPlay》的设定为一个万物皆已NFT的未来。在线葬礼的设置中,哀悼者将纪念礼物的NFT版本发送至已故亲友的虚拟陵墓中。得益于区块链技术,悼念者可根据逝者喜好购买纪念品对应的NFT版本,并将其永久地安置在数字陵墓中。通过与陵墓场景的互动,哀悼者可解锁隐藏线索,获取更多数字纪念品。 我个人是加密学爱好者,博士的研究课题是动画和加密学融合的可能性。以及,重申一下《FuneralPlay》是非营利性质的项目。 Hi:为什么会选择做一个关于葬礼的作品呢?这跟你的个人生活有关系吗? ▼ 施:FuneralPlay中的虚拟葬礼是我下一部影像作品中的一个场景,之前两年我一直执着说一定要用动画的语言表现出来,但今年就想做一个尝试 - 考虑到用视频去讲述这个idea太过主观,或许通过一个平台让观众进行游戏化的交互,可以更好地引导观众去思考数字遗产将如何影响和调解我们未来的生活方式。 Hi:你认为人们应该拥抱技术?还是与技术保持距离? ▼ 施:拥抱还是保持距离取决于你想要什么。我会建议入局前知道自己的位置——二进制的世界里欲望会被放大。 无论是人工智能,元宇宙的出现都不会解决我们的道德问题,而是对我们当前伦理道德解决方案的考验。当我们将道德规范写入它们的客观头脑时,它会放大我们的缺陷和弱点。如果我们要建造反映我们自己价值观的机器/系统/其他技术创新,那么我们需要更多地了解这些价值观,我们需要将它们量化并协商确定哪些是应给予优先权的——但这一步需要多长时间,我不知道。 关于元宇宙的蓝图有太多的猜想了,或许当在焦虑着该以什么身份入局时,不妨先感受下自己的情绪。当每个人的情感都变成各种势力角逐的资本时,当每个表情包背后都牵扯着复杂运算和反馈策略时,那我们的情感在电子年代将如何归属?我不知道,但希望在web3环境下的的电子陵墓里,我们是可以真诚的吧。 Hi:你怎么看待NFT艺术? ▼ 施:我发起《FuneralPlay》的初衷是做一个帮区块链愿景去污名化的项目。近几年由于虚拟货币、NFT、元宇宙概念的兴起,互联网世界充斥着太多没有实际意义但包装成区块链应用即将落地的项目了——这已经脱离了密码朋克对区块链愿景的初衷。仔细研究会发现大多项目都沿用了一套看似深奥的白皮书包装自己圈钱的野心 - 仿佛白皮书已经成为一种文学类型了。我索性提取了这类网站的(美学)元素,将我们的项目包装成了一个虚构的互联网产品——但如果仔细看每个板块的细节,会发现我们在认真开玩笑:) 现阶段聊元宇宙的蓝图太空洞了,希望《FuneralPlay》可以赋予现在空空的元宇宙一点意义。
