ARTICLES OF THE WEEK
HOPE – A HOLIDAY CURATION
The holidays mean something different to everyone. It can be a time of celebration, contemplation, sorrow, religious sentiments, and family traditions, but there’s one thing that ties all of these together: hope.
Mint Gold Dust curator, Eleonora Brizi presents a not so typical holiday curation. One that isn’t filled with ribbon and bows, but one that chronicles the journey of modern humanity experiencing a shift towards hope after a season of growing pains and uncertainty.
The curation features work from Mint Gold Dust’s marketplace and would make a great gift for any crypto or art enthusiast still on your list. Artists include Svccy, Lapin Mignon, Chris Nacht, and more
MEMOIRS AT MINT GOLD DUST
The memoir feature on Mint Gold Dust was created to solve the gap between the artist and collector and track the artwork’s personal history.
When an artist mints a new work on the platform, they are able to write a memoir entry that is attached to the work. This can be more info on what their inspiration was behind the piece, a story about the creation process, or even just their general feelings about the piece. It’s a place that allows artists to share their personal connection to the piece outside of the typical art description attached to the token.
Once a collector buys the piece and holds the token, the memoir travels with it. The collector now has their own opportunity to add on to the story and share their connection to the piece, why they collected it, or even why they support the artist. A collector and viewer’s connection to the piece might vary from the artist’s own point of view, so this allows the collector to share their story.
In a way, this feature takes the connectivity of Discord and Twitter into the platform itself.
As the piece travels hands, the memoir travels with it. The memoir becomes a written record of the ledger, not only sharing who owns the piece, but what attachment they had to it.
Art for everyone, anywhere, all the time.
On this week’s podcast, Eleonora Brizi and Seth Scher sit down and talk about the age of art we’re in, where we can show art anywhere at any time, and how the coming digital advancements open this up wider for the experience of art. Check out their conversation below.
