ODESZA is jumping on the NFT train, joining other artists in their pursuit of the digital art space. The collection is meant to represent the past imprinting on the future– a mixture of old and new– imparting ODESZA and Japanese Dad’s unique essence as artists. Together, they wish to dust away the soil surrounding past visions, creating, “An afterimage of the past imprinted upon the future.” As long time collaborators and friends, Japanese Dad and ODESZA are sure to produce a mind-bendingly-beautiful creation, as is consistent with ODESZA’s live performances. Their use of lights and visuals nourishes an otherworldly concert environment– something potentially enriched further by this latest virtual project. I can’t wait to see what “REMNANTS” has in store for us.
To the artists, “REMNANTS” is:
“An NFT art show by ODESZA & JapaneseDad composed of excavated ideas from their years long collaboration as artists. REMNANTS is a resurrection of artistic concepts lost to time and scattered across hard-drives, unearthing the past to inspire the future and revitalizing forgotten inspirations through the lens of current experience. REMNANTS embodies the rebirth of lost artifacts informing our future history now forever preserved on the blockchain.” (quote found here)
Arriving Saturday, March 20, this first collection will be available at 2pm ET on Nifty Gateway.
