PROOF Grails Artist to Launch Open Edition NFT Project Today
Former PROOF Grails Season I artist, Nicolas Sassoon, is launching his first-ever open-edition NFT project on Ethereum today, Oct. 7, 2022.
The collection, Continuum, has 10,000 total available mints set at a price of 0.05 ETH per purchase and is releasing via Manifold, an application and tool for digital creators to create innovative NFT experiences.
The mint opens at 12 p.m. ET on Oct. 7 and will close on Oct. 8 at 6 p.m. ET.
"Continuum is a digital animation created in 2022 using digital moiré patterning - a central technique in [Sassoon's] practice - in which two overlapping images generate the illusion of a third," the project's description reads. "In Continuum, the interrelated concepts of space and time are interpreted using this technique; they are manifested visually through minimal geometric forms, an hourglass (time) and a sphere (space)."
"Continuum also considers digital animated loops as continuums, where time and space exist autonomously and indefinitely in their own dimension," the description continues. "Continuum is part of a larger body of research inspired by optical and kinetic visual forms originating from the 1960s and 1970s, such as the work of Victor Vasarely, as well as by science fiction book covers from the series 'Ailleurs et Demain' (Elsewhere and Tomorrow) published by Robert Laffont in France in 1969."
