Is the future of art in the Metaverse?

Published

Unveiling the artistic visions of Cao Fei and LuYang. The two contemporary artists share their perspectives on how the metaverse is influencing the world of art.

As artists, how are you using the metaverse to explore new artistic concepts and narratives?

Cao Fei: The metaverse is a place I have lived in. Since creating my digital avatar China Tracy, I have been experiencing the changes and evolvement of digital space in the past decades. My aim is not to use the digital space to achieve a goal or to prove a point; I’m interested in creating space and sharing experiences.

How does your art address the potential issues of identity, representation and diversity within the metaverse?

LuYang: I believe having a virtual identity is a great thing; you can really feel the benefits, for example when playing online games. People can choose their preferred avatars and identities in the virtual world. Since 2010, all the characters in my works have been genderless, which means gender identity is not something that needs to be discussed in my art. This basic setting enables me to create the works I love.

Cao Fei: My work is a representation of my experience and perspectives. I don’t really have an agenda when addressing these issues. When it comes to my works, my avatars – previously China Tracy and, more recently, Oz – are very different aesthetically. China Tracy is an active explorer and embodies a spirit of optimism. Oz, as a gender fluid hybridity of biological body and machine, embodies a serene and introspective demeanour as it gazes upon the virtual world. I think for me as an artist, it’s more important to create space rather than giving conclusion.

In the fast-evolving landscape of contemporary art, a revolutionary force is at play: Digital ledger technology. This decentralized and secure technology has captured the attention of artists worldwide, providing a groundbreaking Tokenization solution to long-standing challenges in the art industry. For the first time, non-centralized computers can establish inviolable rules for software, offering irrefutable proof of ownership and enabling peer-to-peer transfer of assets in mere seconds. This is something tech-savvy creatives are very keen on since the old forged documents of the past 500 years are no longer relevant in the new Decentralized digital ledger order of things.

The Genesis of Digital Ownership

At the heart of the digital ledger revolution for contemporary artists lies the concept of Tokenized digital ownership. By making software-enforced commitments to users, blockchains introduce a paradigm shift, ensuring that ownership of digital assets is verifiable and transferable in a peer-to-peer manner. This is achieved through tokens – representations of ownership hosted and stored directly within the platform of new digital cryptocurrencies.
