Vortex by Jen Stark NFTs

Vortex by Jen Stark NFT Overview

Project Information

Jen Stark's Vortex is a series of 1,000 generative vortexes that pays homage to the intricate systems present in our daily lives.

Art Blocks enables generative artists to upload code to a smart contract. This code, written by the artist, randomly generates a piece of artwork. When a collector mints an artwork using the smart contract, the code is run using a unique, random seed. It is impossible for the artist to know this seed upfront, so the code must be written in a way that guarantees that the artist’s vision is met for any random input. This constraint means that Art Blocks artists must build algorithms that can produce wildly different, high-quality pieces of artwork that all feel cohesive.

Jen Stark is a visual artist that transforms complex ideas about fractals, evolution, color theory, topography, sacred geometries, and patterns of the universe into engaging works of art. Jen has exhibits at the Smithsonian American Art Museum and MOCA. Stark's hand-cut techniques are translated to adapt and evolve within the digital realm through code and brought to life through harmonic sine waves. One can click and drag to interact with the sculptural tunnels.
