Artist's Statement

I am excited to explore concepts through this artwork that tap into the full potential of the medium of digital art in a way that has never been done with it's unique potential to dynamically change over time. This artwork allows the ability to remotely and seamlessly change the video in both the physical and NFT, with the message and meaning of this piece continuing to evolve over the course of my life.

A traditional work of art is more akin to a finite statement, frozen in time at the moment it was completed. With the ability to update this artwork, is it more akin to an ongoing conversation that I can continue to add new meaning to over time.

This artwork will first be available to the public at Christie's 21st Century New York evening sale
