"It’s Alive!" is the complementary artwork in Javier Arrés’ exploratory series titled "Bitcoin, The Origin".
This artwork takes on a more playful narrative than its counterpart in the series to tell the story of the creation of Bitcoin in a fun way.
In this creation, the artist approaches author Mary Shelley’s iconic novel "Frankenstein", or "The Modern Prometheus" to present us with an incredible, unexpected, fantastic and monstrous birth— The Creation! Colossal in size, importance and possibilities. A landmark of humanity.
Arrés, influenced highly by cinema and all things audiovisual, reimagines a "Bitcoin creation" based on the cinematographic iconography of this prolific literary work as a way of relaying Bitcoin's influence on the world’s collective conscious.
Bitcoin is certainly ALIVE!
"Bitcoin, The Origin" is a set of two Visual Toys, titled "Who is Satoshi Nakamoto" and "It’s Alive!" which reflect and explore the mystery and enigmas behind the creation of Bitcoin.
Arrés presents these proposals to us in his signature style, full of iconography, fantasy, maniacal animations and a panoply of details (both subtle and overt) which simultaneously fascinate, hypnotize, and narrate this historical milestone through the singular vision of the artist. Through this series, Arrés freezes a crucial moment of cryptocurrency history, taking a still photo under his vision and turning it into two unique crypto artworks.
