Metamodern Spell Casting
The Blockchain as a Conceptual Medium for Contemporary Visual Artists
I am pretty happy that an essay I wrote earlier this years has been published on the peer reviewed M/C Journal.
Here is the abstract:
Using a Metamodern framework this article considers the NFT as a Metamodern spell casting, a magical instruction that transforms an object/s or idea into something else. Written using “sourcery”, the NFT is undetectable until the effects are made evident. NFTs are stored on a blockchain which is comparable to a chapter in the Akashic records–esoteric knowledge that is readily available to Techno-priests or the people who know how and where to look.
