#02 CryptoArt Monograph / Joshua Davis curated by Ronnie K. Pirovino
Joshua Davis is often referred to as a “legend” in the digital art space.
His history of pushing the boundaries of generative programmatic art is unquestionable. His symphonies in code are operatic. The V01D codebase is one of his masterpieces that has produced a body of art that is vital, striking and beautiful.
The artwork is a glorious fusion of creativity, both human and mechanical. As a painter-turned-programmer, computing became a way to broaden his vision. Animation and interaction presented yet another frontier.
NFTs have become the best way to encapsulate and archive your work, having been extremely prolific in the evolution of largely temporary interactive media on the internet when it became famous as Praystation and won a Golden Nica from the Ars Electronica Festival in Linz. , Austria.
An influence on generations of digital artists and designers, Davis has a lasting legacy. The V01D codebase is a project that has grown and mutated for almost a decade.
A prominent icon in generative art, Davis has begun to focus on his own history, with the goal of looking back on his career. This monograph is a step toward creating a complete catalog raisonné of his career. A book is critical to properly cementing his place in the pantheon of iconic artists. The V01D is the main theme, as this series is properly celebrated and commemorated.
