AudioVisual Bitcoin Art
I'm pleased to announce that my AudioVisual Bitcoin Art Collection, a milestone release for my art career, is finally complete and ready for release!
For the drop on Nifty Gateway, there will be a total of 6 different NFT's in the collection. For each of the 3 pieces, there will be one full-length (1/1 auction) and one shorter version of the "money shot" of each. All 6 tokens are in video format with audio tracks.
The 3 auction pieces will each include the #1 Artist Proof, matted framed and shipped.

Why did I title my milestone collection "AudioVisual Bitcoin Art"?
I will set the tone for my explanation here, with Merriam Webster's definition of "audiovisual": Definition of Audiovisual: designed to aid in learning or teaching by making use of both hearing and sight.
Since embarking on this mission to educate the masses about bitcoin using visual art, I have contemplated long and hard about how best to impact people with combinations of images and words.
I've studied the words and practices of experts in social psychology and propaganda from the likes of Gustave Le Bon, Edward Bernays, Friedrich Nietzsche, and others.
The voice of Gustave Le Bon, particularly seems to always ring in my head as I take particular creative decisions, at times when questioning whether or not a certain image may resonate with "the crowd"
"The imagination of the crowds … is impressed above all by images. … It is possible to evoke them through the judicious use of words and formulas."
