Born Star - The ultimate Venus?
As the Homo Ludens that I am, I naturally had to play with the words of my title again. If you exchange just one letter, you have what the main character here perhaps might have been, more than 500 years ago. But here it also means, that we are talking about the birth, both of Venus and the blockchain. The superstars of their time.
This rare digital artwork was originally created for a makersplace project about blockchain.
The figure is a detail from the famous painting "The Birth of Venus"
When Botticelli created his masterpiece, now one of best known paintings of all times, it might have been just as revolutionary as what we see on our computers today. For me the artistic parallel to blockchain technology. The dawn of a new era in art history!
I kidnapped the goddess into photoshop to create the main character of my piece. At first I had a very different palette in mind...
For the background I combined some machine parts with the dark area I defined for the moving chain elements.
After that, I placed individual elements on separate layers, to prepare the animation.
The blockchain is represented by coins held together by chain links. I put it all back together in Adobe Animate for a first test run:
At this point I wasn't so happy with the mint/pink look anymore and decided to go for warm tones and make the chain elements stick out in a more gold color, to represent the creation of value. Going back and forth between Photoshop and Animate, I eventually got to the final version.
