To Be An In-circle Artist (After Jier He, After Alberto Greco)

Interactive website, DApp, blockchain

This interactive website, built on an Ethereum contract, aims to establish a fair network that allows everyone to become in-circle artists, securing an identity in blockchain. Artist NFTs can be minted as proof of attendance. However, it presents a paradox: while striving for inclusivity, the project reveals inherent traits of exclusion in the digital realm. The project encourages discussions on achieving an equitable digital utopia. This work was longlisted in the 2023 Lumen Prize in the Crypto category.

Inspired by the traditional Chinese moon gate, this installation links the physical world to the virtual art space. The Circle Gate symbolizes the shift from tangible to digital, highlighting the transcendence of traditional in-circle artist boundary.

In 2016, Jier He declared, "The person who is standing in the circle is an in-circle artist," challenging traditional notions of artist identity. This idea parallels Greco's 1962 Vito Dito project, where he drew a circle around a person or an object, proposing the idea that art exists all around us, not just within the gallery.

Artist Poem, 2024

Blockchain-based interactive website

Inspired by The House of Dust (1967) created by Alison Knowles, Artist Poem is a blockchain-based interactive website that invites users to collectively construct an artist manifesto. This digital space allows for the audience’s contribution of words, which links to the artist identity, crafting a dynamic ‘Artist poem.’ The work emphasizes the improvements in inclusivity and accessibility within the art community in the digital age.
