About This Collection
Harem is a collection consists of 22 pieces of 1/1 artworks which have music and video loop carrefully designed. The artist is working on this project approximately more than a year.
The light setup of the collection was created by the logic of photography. Since slow motion images need more light, the artist arranged the ambiance light with old-style, total 40KW high-power Tungsten lights instead of modern LED lights.
Matte painting method was applied to have periodic art feeling. With pastel color grading, artist tried to give historical paintings feeling. All musics used at artworks were selected with caution and edited and designed one by one with looping technology.
What is NFT?
A non-fungible token (NFT) is a non-interchangeable unit of data stored on a blockchain, a form of digital ledger. NFTs can also be associated with reproducible digital files such as photos, videos, and audio. NFTs use a digital ledger to provide a public certificate of authenticity or proof of ownership, but do not restrict the sharing or copying of the underlying digital files or the re- creation of identical NFTs. The lack of interchangeability (fungibility) distinguishes NFTs from blockchain cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin.
