Checks Elements, the innovative project that pairs physical art with digital counterparts, is bringing a 152-piece collection to the public. Titled "Checks Elements," the collection revolves around the classical elements - Earth, Fire, Water, and Air - and brings them to life through stunning monoprints and their corresponding NFTs.
The collection is arranged in six tiers, all multiples of the original four elements: Alpha, Order, Isolate, Composite, Compound, and Complete. Each artwork in the collection is a generative piece on Ethereum, hand-drawn and then reproduced via a Mailander 202 lithographic printing press, following the algorithmic instructions inherent to the NFT.
The first auctions for Alpha Elements: Earth, Air, and Water will begin this week at renowned auction house Christie's, with 30 percent of the proceeds going to St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital. The remaining collection will be made available 24 hours after the Christie's auctions close on 5/23, marking the 100th day of Checks.
❗Why It Matters
Jack Butcher continues to innovate on top of the Checks ecosystem, this time bridging the digital and physical worlds with an on-chain NFT and physical print as well. While the ecosystem has lost some of its shine during the depths of an NFT bear market, Butcher and team continue to build out Checks and Opepen.
📊 By the Numbers
The Checks collections, Originals and Editions, are down 22 and 32 percent respectively over the last month. The collections hold floor prices of 0.32 and 0.42 ETH.
