Interview with Kevin Abosch

designboom (DB): What is the focus of the NFT ART DAY ZRH talk? And what do you want your visitors to take away from the meeting?

Kevin Abosh (KA): Much of my work as an artist has the advent of blockchain technology and NFTs, as well as challenging traditional values. I look forward to comparing the notes and sharing some of my own discoveries.

DB: What made you interested in crypto art? Also, when did you first start using crypto art?

KA: I first started using blockchain as a method in late 2012. I like alphanumericals, and the idea of ​​generating a magical string of valuable letters and numbers led me into a hole in my quest. Ten years later, we are still finding new ways to tackle blockchain technology itself, not just as a carrier and distribution system, but as a real way.

KA: For decades, artists and their collectors working natively in the digital realm have found friction in the process of transferring work from one management entity to another. NFTs have brought elegance to the process of changing the management of digital works. Some seem angry at what is characterized as a giant decentralized gambling game where people trade and bet on NFTs in the hope of profiting from the dynamics of the market. They further describe “pump and dump” scenarios and other forms of market manipulation, but I don’t think this is new to the art world — but with blockchain technology and crypto, it’s all amplified. increase.
