HODL is a full on-chain NFT that grows with the duration of ownership, and its growth is reset when the money is transferred from the wallet.
This work expresses the subjective value felt by the owner, as opposed to the objective value determined by the market, through the experience of owning an NFT with time.
Advertise" is a project that uses a "signage system that allows you to advertise any URL you want without censorship". The wallet used to post the URL will be sent an NFT (Non-Financial Transaction Format) certificate of advertisement.
In order to post a URL, you must have paid at least "the amount paid for the last post" (+ gas fee). This amount will be reset at 0:00 JST. If there are multiple submissions in a short period of time, the URL with the highest amount paid will be displayed. Other URLs may not be displayed.
All proceeds will be returned to the gallery during the exhibition period.
Recycle Bin is conceptual art using NFT with the theme of rebirth. By sending unwanted NFT to the Recycle Bin address, the NFT will be Burned (discarded) and you will get the Recycle Bin's (trash bin) generative art NFT instead. New art will be generated based on the sent NFT. The pain of confronting the past and a prayer for rebirth are expressed.
Receipt is a conceptual art using NFT. The visual is determined by the amount you pay. You can pay any amount; you can mint (create) one token per price. All the code to draw is stored on the blockchain. The transaction itself is your participation in the art. The reality of the value of NFT is the exchange of data on the blockchain, which is used by many people who trust it. 0xhaiku believes that the memory of the act itself is the new value of art.
marquee shelter is a project to bury obsolete web technologies in the blockchain. The animation of the work is created using only the marquee tag, which has been deprecated from the HTML standard for creating websites. It has a life span that cannot be controlled, as it can stop moving with browser version upgrades. It is a life-like device on the blockchain, which is expected to be eternal, and evokes thoughts about technology and life.
Memory Disc" is the first work of media artist NIINOMI's "A SYSTEM" project, in which computer systems are used as art, and is modeled after a CD as a storage medium that records various attributes.

コナトゥスの目つきで / With the eyes of Conatus
This work examines how it is possible to document the time created by the artist’s encounter with Okabe-san, a patient with an intractable disease, in the new medium of VR. Unlike the editing in which a single moment of time flows on a rectangular screen, which is often assumed to be a prerequisite for video, this work attempts to deconstruct contemporary vision and sense of time corrected by various devices by arranging images and texts as objects with variable shapes, positions, rotation, scale, and other aspects.
Thales’ Engraving / タレスの刻印
"Thales’ Engraving" refers to a photograph or video of the starry sky that uses a special long-exposure method. Star trails appear in the dark night sky, sometimes with clouds or thunder, as well as airplanes or satellites. The camera is digitally controlled by a unique device and program, and it takes several tens of minutes to several hours to shoot. With this kind of function, you can get a variety of images that differ each time depending on location, time, weather, and so on.
In addition, average smartphones and compact digital cameras were used for shooting, and post-production editing, such as color correction, was limited to a minimum.

Generative art generated by the program based on traditional Chinese aesthetic impressions will be sold as NFT. 256 editions of artwork visuals will be generated the moment you purchase NFT and will be unique to you.
Slices" is a work about time and space, with 7 + 1 basic patterns and infinite variations.
Level: 0 as a species (or planet?) There are seven patterns, from Level: 0 as a seed (or planet?) to Level: 6, which gradually evolves into more complex shapes and blooms something like a flower, and Level: All, which is a combination of all of these patterns and is extremely horizontal, for a total of eight patterns.
Since all of these are generated generatively by the program, the variations are infinite, but finite variations are made possible by the NFT smart contract that generates the hash values from which the visual decisions are made.
Inspired by the exhibition space of NEORT++, this installation is intended to be viewed in a physical space and is generative art drawn from values generated on the blockchain.
Tiny Sketches NFT
A total of 240 editions newly produced by Takawo for the "TinySketches" exhibition will be sold as NFT. Mintable works will be updated weekly.
