Art Blocks Claw Arcade
Week 28 2021 Review
Issue #44 was created on Sunday 18th of July 2021, the 28th week of the year. Here we have another amazing 3D cover by Dudly the Grand Master created with Cinema 4D. Art Blocks were going parabolic, incredibly high sales were piling up and it was the talk of NFT town as it was. Snowfro had previously described the Art Blocks platform as a vending machine where you insert a coin and you get generative art back. In turn, we took inspiration from that and used a claw machine instead where some cubes (blocks) would need to be awkwardly captured. In other news at the time, Damien Hirst dropped his project “The Currency” which we didn’t find attractive at all. NFT photography was slowly establishing itself with strong collections such as “Twin Flames” by Justin Aversano taking the spotlight. The team also made a small piece on the creator of HEX who appears to be a larger than life persona with a huge following. Things were heating up pretty nicely and little did we know, the upcoming NFT breakout was so close! The ArtDrop for issue #44 was “Deceived” by the artist White Lights, who creates magnificent code-driven 3D audiovisuals.
