3D Printed Generativemasks Features
3D Printed Generativemasks are 3D-printed artworks of 3D Generativemasks, delivering the highest quality of physical art with complete build-to-order production. By embedding unique NFC chips in each piece, all 3D Printed Generativemasks will be given a serial number as a distinctive piece of art, despite being created from the same 3D model and color scheme. NFC chips can be scanned with a smartphone to display details such as artwork information and the owner’s wallet address.
Generativemasks is a generative art NFT project started by creative coder Shunsuke Takawo in August 2021. The project, an extension of a casual, daily, visual coding activity known as “daily coding,” attracted tremendous interest when it sold out 10,000 NFTs within two hours of its release. Shunsuke Takawo donated the sales to generative art-related organizations and companies and founded the Japan Generative Art Foundation, utilizing the funds for generative art promotion.
DMM.make 3D PRINT presents the diversity of artist activities through the sale of 3D-printed NFT art, promoting the development of a system for artists to conduct sustainable activities.
