At this year’s Art Basel in the Swiss city Basel, the pioneering exhibition Chance Encounters in New Mediums: Generative Art, presented by Tezos, is highlighting the modern resurgence of generative art. Tezos, an energy-efficient blockchain, is converting the generative art into a live artistic process in which the element of chance is embraced and engraved onto the blockchain in this one-of-a-kind interactive display. Visitors get to co-create a new generative artwork that is instantly minted as an NFT and it’s given to participants in real-time as part of the interactive experience. The exhibition is headed by Herbert W Franke, a visionary early generative art pioneer and science fiction writer, with his 1979 MONDRIAN software, courtesy of Herbert W Franke and Susanne Päch. The TI-99/4, the first 16-bit home computer, was used to produce MONDRIAN, a dynamic generative software. A 21:21 minute sequence of the dynamic generative programme captured at a solo show at ZKM in 2010, now minted as an NFT on Tezos is on display.
