Vancouver Prepares For New Blockchain-Based Art Installation


August 16, 2021

Blockchain has become such a popular topic over the last year that almost anyone with an internet connection has, at a minimum, read about the technology in some form or another. Now we’ve reached the point where blockchain has moved beyond the digital landscape and manifested in the physical world.

Vancouver Biennale, a Canadian public art exhibit, recently revealed the organization will soon be unveiling a new physical/augmented reality (AR) art piece that utilizes blockchain technology. Visitors will be able to use IOS and Android devices to take part in the experience, combining physical and digital mediums to compliment a unique artistic vision.

Jessica Angel, a New York-based artist that wanted to demonstrate the ways technology can be incorporated into public spaces, blurring the lines between the digital world and reality, created the installation. According to reports, the artwork is sized at 1,800 square meters, using a two-dimensional vinyl mural that can be viewed physically and through applications. Angel utilized the Kusama network to create Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) to hold individual animations for the presentation, which are planned to be sold to mitigate the costs of the project.

“Art is a mobilizing force with the power to bridge seemingly dissimilar worlds, and Voxel Bridge exhibits this capacity,” Angel said. “This installation transcends the enjoyment of art into a unifying and experimenting effort that enables blockchain technology, AR and public art to examine new ways of interaction,”
