Background

The evolution of digital technology has enabled people around the world to access the same content at the same time and to share the same experience in different time zones. In today's digitized world, where temporal and spatial constraints are fading, what meaning does the experience of the present moment have? This work is both Digital Art that can be viewed online and an installation that will be exhibited at NEORT++, a real gallery of Digital Art that opened this spring in Tokyo. This work considers the relationship between NFT and artworks, and the experience of viewing artworks on the screen and in real space.

Point

An artwork consisting of 1000 NFT flowers and the tree that makes them bloom

MOMENT is a cherry blossom-themed work consisting of 1,000 flowers and a cherry blossom tree that combines them. The flowers will be sold as NFT and the minted flowers will bloom on the cherry tree.

Blooming only in spring

This cherry blossom tree only bloom during the spring when the exhibition is held. When the season passes, the blossoms will fall and bloom again in the spring of next year or the year after. Because it is digital data that is unaffected by temporal and spatial constraints, we have created an experience that can be experienced only at this very moment. They are beautiful precisely because they are falling. This work is inspired by the transience and beauty of cherry blossoms. Each NFT flower can be viewed all year round.

First memorable exhibition work at NEORT++

NEORT++ will officially open on April 1, 2022 as an experimental exhibition space for digital art. MOMENT is a work created for this opening. It will remain with the gallery for years and decades to come.

Art
