As the sun rises over the world of digital art, Jeremy Cowart, OpenSea, and Transient Labs join forces to unveil AURAS. The event is an avant-garde live NFT performance in Nashville scheduled for May 2, 2023.
Nestled at the crossroads of photography, performance, and NFT art, this endeavor will generate 10,000 one-of-a-kind images in a lightning-fast 20 minutes. Eager collectors can snatch up these digital masterpieces on OpenSea starting May 9. Don’t miss a beat; the performance will be broadcast live on social media for all to witness.
Merging Artistry, Technology, and Authenticity
On the much-anticipated May 2 event, Cowart will craft 10,000 distinct NFTs in a mere 20 minutes, harnessing the power of Kaleidoscope. Developed by Transient Labs, this innovative image-processing library is designed to blend photography and digital art with the Web3 landscape.
Kaleidoscope will extract generative traits from the photographs, streamlining the metadata creation process for AURAS. The project’s unique rarity structure and attributes will spring to life, drawing from the vibrant colors within the photographs.
As a generative venture, Kaleidoscope will unveil these traits with stunning clarity for all to appreciate. Eager creators can anticipate the launch of The Lab, Transient Labs’ state-of-the-art creator studio featuring Kaleidoscope, slated for release later this quarter.
AURAS – Redefining Creativity and Trust
Illuminating the murkier waters of the Web3 industry, AURAS confronts the trust deficit in NFTs fueled by rampant bots and scams dominating the news. As the community craves authenticity, this event pledges to champion transparency, verification, and trust.
Witness the project’s birth from inception to completion, staged before an audience at Vū Nashville which boasts a sprawling 16,000-square-foot space.
With the lens trained on himself as a pristine canvas, Cowart will blend analog techniques to forge a collection of NFTs. Eschewing AI and generative code, he employs a symphony of color with diverse lighting setups, robotics, triple-layered projection, and a staggering 130-foot LED volume wall.
Speaking about AURAS, Jeremy Cowart said, “I have a passion for photographing people of all shapes, sizes, and creeds, driven by my longing for a more loving and accepting world,”
He continues, “Sadly, it seems that we are heading in the wrong direction. To promote diversity and inclusivity, my upcoming project AURAS will feature me as a blank canvas, creatively representing all of humanity’s colors in a unique and historic creative process. The magic in what I do isn’t in any one photograph, it’s in the volume of what I create. There’s never been a big enough canvas until now.”
