Digital and Physical Sculptures born from Ethereum Transactions

Every transaction on the Ethereum blockchain is denoted by a unique transaction ID or hash. Yet to me, rather than this simply being a matter of bookkeeping, it marks a moment in time, a moment when in this case a collector said, yes I'd like to collect this work for the first time.

Using these unique transactions The Collectors series creates three unique generative forms for three collectors of my work – WhaleShark, MetaKovan and Paris Hilton. These sculptures mark a non-repeatable moment in time and space, a totem of intent.

Each NFT comes with a physical sculpture, created in clear resin, so they might exist in both the digital and analogue worlds.
