Emerging crypto platform, LGND Inc., recently launched a collection of tokenized digital artworks titled RECYCLED PIXELS by acclaimed Japanese artist, Haroshi. The collection features a diverse range of works including digitized renditions of his iconic skull and middle finger sculptures made from discarded skateboard decks. 

“I’ve always been interested in the things that supposedly do not exist, like the things that are not visible to our eyes or things that make up dark matter for instance. When I use augmented reality with my phone, I felt this excitement like I was experiencing something special, almost like if I were to see the colors that insects can see, or having the sense of smell only animals have. It’s just like someone who has the ability to see a ghost,” said the artist in a statement.

Accompanying the two works is a gold humanoid fire hydrant based on the artist’s GUZO series of three-dimensional figures. “For example, I made a bronze sculpture called ‘Free Hydrant’ in the past — a fire hydrant is always looking at the same scenery and I thought would be cool to free him. When no one is looking, he will move to the next block and the next block. If you ever see the fire hydrant move a city block, he’s doing so in the middle of the night. Maybe you could ollie over him with your skateboard yesterday but can’t do that today because he has moved and changed overnight. In a parallel world, that might be a daily occurrence,” the artist described.

Haroshi’s limited edition RECYCLED PIXELS collection is now available on LGND Inc.’s website.

David vs the Virus
"An ode to the year everything changed" - Frank Wilder The story of the underdog is a reoccurring theme throughout history, and perhaps the most famous example is that of David vs Goliath. A tale about perseverance, in which David takes on and defeats the giant warrior using only his smarts and a stone. Famously depicted by Michelangelo's David statue. Fast forward to the present day in 2020 and we as humanity are faced with our own Goliath. An uncontrollable pandemic spread around the globe. Now with the entire planet being affected by this we understand the gravity of the situation at hand, whether it be a virus we’re fighting or other forces at play, there is indeed an energy out to shift the balance of the Universe… Regardless of our differences, in this moment must unite as one. With diligence, trust and belief we as a whole can come together to triumph against "the enemy". Stay vigilant my friends. Original score created by the one and only Phoenix Wilder.
