2120: An Art Experience is a collaboration between YTG Agency, Portion.io, and artist Jacob M Fisher. The exhibition explores the future of art as a form and industry, as one of the first blockchain-enabled art experiences.
Titled 2120: An Art Experience, exhibits a work titled …for you fs84. “This is a work that belongs to everyone who experiences it,” says Jason Rosenstein, Cofounder of Portion, a blockchain marketplace for art. Richard Heby of YTG Agency says: “We’re imagining a world where shared experiences and fractional ownership are the norm.”
Fisher explores themes of collective memory and nostalgia, by combining new materials with dynamic digital forms. Thus, the artist further amalgamates physical and digital forms to create a unified work that lends itself to shared experience.
Attendees can purchase a 1 of 247, limited-edition puzzle pieces cut from a larger drawing, which gives you fractional ownership of a physical work, on top of the shared experience you gain from attending the event. You will also have the option to register at Portion.io, where the record will be available on the blockchain for reference, transference, or sale in perpetuity. The artwork thus becomes a permanent and shareable digital artifact of a temporary physical experience.
