Everything you need to know about GEN.ART and generative art
GEN.ART is a generative art platform and community. We enable artists, whether world-renowned or up-and-coming, to release art immutably on the ethereum blockchain. We focus on building relationships, storytelling, and bridging the traditional art world with the digital.
Generative art refers to art that in whole or in part has been created with the use of an autonomous system. An autonomous system in this context is generally one that is non-human and can independently determine features of an artwork that would otherwise require decisions made directly by the artist. In some cases the human creator may claim that the generative system represents their own artistic idea, and in others that the system takes on the role of the creator.
The blockchain gives us the ability to control ownership of art pieces. Additionally with cryptography we can generate unique identifiers or a “hash” to guarantee that each piece of art differs from each other. The blockchain holds all required information to generate the art from the given hash. Theoretically, any 3rd party is able to download the art script from the blockchain and re-generate the art script from the hash.
