VOICES OF WEB3 is an archive of voices and statements summarising the year 2023 in digital art and culture. It is a document in time on the blockchain, bringing together some of the leading voices shaping Web3 and the history of digital art: artists, curators, and collectors.
THE VOICE GEMS
The statements have been recorded in the form of spoken word, poems, and songs by the contributors and are frozen in time as VOICE GEMS on the blockchain. The VOICE GEMS were created by Harry Yeff (Reeps100) and Trung Bao, who have developed a voice-centred generative system utilizing data found in a human voice to synthesise the form and colour of the artwork.
Every voice is unique, and with that comes unique fingerprint-like data. Features like pitch, resonance, harmonics, and pace sculpt particle data points in a simulated digital space.
"In a vast expanse of ones and zeros, we find fertile ground for collaboration and inspiration. Artists and thinkers converge, forming the interconnected fibers of this Web3 tapestry. But let us not forget that its true essence is not found in the perfection of algorithms but in the imperfections of the human spirit. Whether we are blanketed in nostalgia or overzealously chasing the horizon of an unknown future, it is our humanity that sets us apart from the sterile sea of digital conformity. May our voices, our creativity, and our ever-curious minds find ways to transcend the machine-like limitations imposed in this technological age."
