Rebeca handed you the pot filled with soup, she placed it next to you. As you had foreseen, you had no appetite.

Rebecca stared at you, an unyielding gaze.

Then, you lifted the lid. You lifted it slowly, as slow as Rebecca had placed it. You felt a strange dread as you uncovered the pot, but understood it was your nerves playing tricks on you. You fantasized of being far away, maybe in the lobby rather than the top floor, alone with her.

Rebecca stared at you, an unyielding gaze.

And when the lid was finally removed, and you looked inside, and then you looked at Rebecca, and Rebecca was staring at you with unyielding gaze, and she turned her eyes towards the inside of the pot, and she smiled, and you started moaning, and everything decided to dance in front of your eyes, everything started to blend together, and only the image of the lid remained, rising slowly, the liquid inside, and... and...

You had not expected that. You were too smart to expect that. You had the intelligence to spare, even to the point that the overflow was unable to keep on living inside your brain, and it decided to seek a way out. Now you count numbers and more numbers sitting in the bunk. No one can get a word out of you, but you used to look through the window, as if you expected to see luminous signs, and then you step forward with your right foot, you twist your hip the same way that someone who is preparing to swing a golf club would, and you bury your empty hand inside the void of your cell.

Fragment of ‘Puzzle’ by Julio Cortazar 1938.

Auto-Erotic Sphinx with Toys
In this image, a giant sphinx spoons itself in erotic play within an aquatic styled environment littered by various denizens. These creatures include symbols and archetypes both current and nostalgic–each inhabiting a rootedness within mass cultural adolescence. Among the roster are Servbots, video game inspired mushrooms, a Pacman-like creature, a distant sea faring rubber duck, creatures sporting the symbols reminiscent of popular anime, and a Pokemon-like rabbit (a novel incarnation of Ganesha indicated by the Shiva trident on its nose). In addition, a few sea creatures partly inspired by sea monsters of western antiquity conglomerate along the mid left side of the composition. The Sphinx itself is an amalgam of aquatic, fetishist, ancient Egyptian, and 80’s style adornments, both living, as in a clown fish, or material, such as a cassette tape. Nautically colored antennae receive somatic signals from the atmosphere, perhaps from the 8 Ball moon or giant ringed planet beyond.

Who Is The Creator 2
The idea for this piece was borne out of a tweet of mine that caused a bit of a stir. I’d posted a link to a blog article I’d written a number of months previous titled ‘Who is the Creator’ discussing various types of creative collaborations and why I hire people to work on my animations. It generated a lot of debate around creation and attribution with the community split on whether it’s right or wrong for an artist to hire other professionals to help them realize their art projects. I decided to push the boundaries even further and see how the cryptoart community responded. What if I quite literally had nothing to do with the physical or digital elements of the work other than coming up with the concept and coordinating it? I decided there was one artist in the space who could add huge value to this idea on levels that none other could and so I gathered my courage and contacted the great José Delbo to ask him if he’d be interested in a very unique collaboration. I explained to him that to make this piece ‘work’ he couldn't have any say in what I produced and moreover, he wouldn’t even be allowed to see the animation until it was dropped on MakersPlace. To my surprise, Mr Delbo agreed to my proposal. The animation tells the story of the creative process, which includes my roles as writer, director, and producer working with a team and making edits and changes ‘in real time’. The dialogue between myself and my ‘hired guns’ plays out in front of the viewer. The music written for the piece adds to the nostalgia of the comic book superhero theme but other elements such as the snapping and kicking of the pencil and the signing of my signature at the bottom incorporates further layers and challenges the viewer to ask important questions, such as, is the ‘Art’ the final animation (the creation) or is the ‘Art’ the concept/credit for the creation itself?

Dreaming at Dusk
More than 15 years ago, Tor onion services were brought to digital life. An ecosystem of onions has been blooming ever since. To commemorate this landmark in the history of privacy, we collaborated with @ixshells to create a one-of-a-kind digital artifact: a generative art piece derived using the private key of the very first onion service, duskgytldkxiuqc6.onion.
