These digital artworks „age“ as time passes

These artworks only exist because of the two-folded artistic dynamic of Capture and Display. Brought together, these create a new generation of the still life art genre which is does not just capture a moment in time, but let’s it be relived over and over again forever. Or as the philosopher Wolfram Eilenberger has beautifully described it after learning about this project: „capture temporality in a picture“. Read full article

Time. Capture. Display.

Once the cycle ends and the Flower has died, it restarts and the flower is reborn.

The faster, the rarer.
The slower, the cheaper.

The three bloom velocities are accelerated, real time and slowed down. Each of the three accelerated artworks exist each only 1x. Three other artworks bloom in real time just as the flower did, each limited to 100 copies. And three flowers are offered as open editions at an affordable prize, these will bloom over about one year’s time.

FAQs

How can I purchase these digital artworks?
You can easily purchase these artworks with credit card on Nifty Gateway. However, it is also possible to purchase the artworks with Ethereum, also on Nifty Gateway.
 

How does ownership of digital art work?
Ownership of digital art works via a non-fungible token (NFT) which is a digital certificate of ownership built on blockchain technology. That contains the provenance, the history, and all activities surrounding a digital asset. It is on the blockchain - meaning the activities can be viewed by the public and it is immutable - it cannot be forged, never.
 

Can I resell the digital artwork I purchased?
Yes. If you own an NFT, you can resell it. There are platforms like Nifty Gateway and Opensea which enable public listings and a secondary market. When reselling NFTs there are fees which get automatically cut off the reselling price, such as the platform fee (usually 2.5 to 5 %) and artist royalties (usually between 2.5 to 10%)

 

How can a digital artwork age?
This is possible due to smart contracts, which are applications on the blockchain. Flowtys created a unique custom smart contract which enables artworks to age with the passing of time.

 

Can I hang up this digital artwork on a wall?
Yes, it will eventually be possible. There are web3 frames specifically built to display digital artworks, such as Tokenframe. We have partnered up to soon allow displaying of aging artworks on their frames.

 

Is there a physical print edition?
Yes. There will be physical prints in cooperation with NZZ, which can be purchased here: https://shop.nzz.ch/nzz-edition-kunst/michael-wesely-x-flowtys

Tokenframe will support the Still Life 2.0 aging NFTs use case.

Minting is closed. For now.

We are rescheduling the launch on Nifty Gateway. Drop your Email to get informed once it reopens.

We'll let you know!
