A Moment of Reflection

With the concepts of time and cycles so closely entwined with blockchain technology and crypto culture, “Gazers” stands out to me thematically as one of the strongest generative art collections in the “long form“ style popularized by the Artblocks platform. Long before the NFT mania, Matt Kane has been an artist and leader in the nascent cryptoart scene. An early proponent of artist royalties, Matt has been a strong and steady voice in espousing the sustainable values of a new decentralized artist economy. The participative dimension of Gazers speaks to these values, evidenced by the strong collector community that over a long duration, interact and celebrate the lunar events visualized through a dynamic, living artwork.
