This is Shinji Murakami’s first NFT. I thought “Bitcoin” is the best subject for the first NFT of my career.
Shinji’s sculpture is a voxel style art piece with a Minecraft look, influenced by 80s video games. His original concept was to focus on these pixelated representations that were supposed to be a thing of the past with the technology evolution based on Moore’s Law, and to explore their place in art history. With the rise of Minecraft and the indie game industry, the current generation of gamers sees it as a cool way to express themselves. It’s interesting to see how the same thing can be treated as both nostalgic and up-to-date.
