Software as Artwork2022
This edition of 50 videos are NFT videos detailing the pursuit of creating software as an artistic gesture. They are made with a combination of custom and state-of-the-art Natural Language Processing tools. In addition, the pieces consititute a credit for access to new and developing projects — ones where software is the canvas. The NFTs were deployed on a custom written contract using the Manifold platform and can be bought on all commercially available ERC721 compatible NFT platforms. Finally, there are two variants of the films: English and French. For more information see the project page.
Charting Artistic Rigor2020
8.5 x 14”
This limited edition print of 100 visually interprets how abstract painter Wassily Kandinsky viewed the relationship between different forms of art. In his book Concerning the Spiritual in Art he describes this relationship as a pyramid. In this legal sized print, the vertical space is time. Different artforms are different branches stemming from the apex of the pyramid. In addition, thirty-six artists cited in Jono’s MFA thesis are plotted. The back includes the entire quote from Kandinsky alongside the edition number and artist signature. Printed by Sarah Riegelmann in New York City.
