RE-VS.

2023
Madrid, España

RE-VS. is an artistic project that explores the relationship between the physical and the virtual world, between public and private space, and between the collective and the individual through the modifications that one suffers as a consequence of the actions that occurred in the other.

It establishes relationships between plastic and digital art and a performance broadcast in streaming. The resulting mural reflects the impact generated by the digital market on a physical piece.

DIGITAL AND PHYSICAL PROCESS

The initial design takes the word VERSUS, a Latin participle whose meaning is to “show contrast or confrontation between two entities, concepts, or things.”
The project’s starting point is a 12 x 12 m mural with this word.
The same digital design is divided into a grid of 7 X 5 individual and unique sectors.

DIGITAL WORK

The design becomes a 5-minute video loop that begins and ends at the same point as the physical work.

In between, the piece undergoes formal and chromatic alterations that continuously generate different compositions. Each NFT was a .mov file certified with a smart contract acquired through the Obilum.art platform.

ARCO ART FAIR

The project was presented in the ARCOmadrid 2023 Contemporary Art Fair context.

During all the days of ARCO, Boa Mistura remained on the wall for 24 hours to proceed to the live removal of the NFT sold through the OBILUM sales platform, simultaneously with the exact moment of acquisition.

We made a public streaming connection through our youtube channel and an installation of 35 synchronized monitors showing the original NFTs that could be seen at the PONCE + ROBLES booth, which remained active during the five days of the Fair.

GENERATIVE, PHYSICAL MURAL

According to the sale of NFTs, the mural evolved generatively from day to day. The removal took place live. At the end of the Fair, the initial mural was transformed into a new work.
