#ArtProject is a Truebit.io initiative, IN COLLABORATION WITH JESSICA ANGEL, TO bring the art and blockchain communities into FOSTERING art creation, experimentation, and fundraising.
the Dogethereum Bridge #ArtProject is a penetrable public art space measuring 23 ft. high, 30 ft. wide, and 40 ft. long, designed by Jessica Angel.
The concept for this public art piece is inspired by the Klein Bottle, a mathematical object that symbolizes the unification between the Dogecoin and the Ethereum blockchains.
the Dogethereum Bridge features a public blockchain built for visual artists to work in conjunction with developers. Designed to render interactive pieces that take life within the Klein Bottle Structure.
The pavilion structure will be a hub for education and discussion; A venue for workshops, lectures, and academic collaborations that promote the adoption of blockchain technology.
ART + BLOCKCHAIN
This public installation is a nexus for creative cooperations and collaborations between arts and engineering;. A 3D medium for exploring blockchain technology implementations in a decentralized world.
The Dogethereum Bridge #ArtProject will launch a new generation of creative art+engineering projects. It will also be the founding seed for the decentralized #ArtProject Initiative
This public art piece will be a penetrable structure made of steel sheets build into pieces; To be assembled and disassembled, allowing the structure to travel around the world. The structure is free of any additional structural frames; similar to a dome. The piece is self-bearing, which allows for maximizing the material properties efficiently.
The sculpture has a walking area of 565 SF. It allows 47 people to be inside the space at the same time. The structural capacity of the work is enough to resist any weather condition or seismic load.
The pavilion will launch on May 2019 as part of the Vancouver Biennale of Public Art, and it will be up for one year. Installation will happen at the Hinge Park in Olympic Village, one of Vancouver’s newest parks. The sculpture will welcome the community to offer an experiential approach to blockchain technology.
The public programming schedule will be published in the fall of this year between September and October of 2018
