RUTGER VAN DER TAS

We are rapidly moving into a world where we are hyper-connected through all sorts of devices. Staying focused is a problem when we disconnect from who we are. But who are we? Paranoid Android?

All Rutger Van Der Tas' offline production can be used for his work online. To him, it is a growing necessity to generate his own offline content in order to create digital work based on that. In his vision, the handcraft of painting and drawing adds value to his work online, as they are both equally important.

Async 3rd Auctions Results

Async has released and auctioned off some new and very memorable programmable art these last few weeks of April.

Pak’s first Async piece, The Tribe, was teased back in March and went up for auction in the third weekend of April. The Master went for 17.5 ETH to Metakovan. Its many Layers that make up this intricate artwork went to several different owners for a total sale of 41.5 ETH. 

 

Almost immediately “The Tribe” began to drastically change, with the new Layer owners and Pak himself altering the forms and colors of the piece. 

There are still some Layers available for collecting. Please note that most of them have 1 ETH reserve price, check them out here

 

The next day, Rutger van der Tas’ “Day/Night” piece was auctioned for an impressive total of 27 ETH (including Layers). This autonomous piece completely changes based on whether it is day or night time in the coordinates input by a specific Layer owner. Metakovan once again won this piece and set the new coordinates to point to the Singapore timezone.  

 

Another remarkable autonomous piece was Alotta Money’s “Dictatorship”, where only the Master was for sale. It was acquired by Basileus for 20 ETH. It presents a window to infinite combinations and possibilities.

Alotta Money, as well as an autonomous script, fully control all Layers in the piece, so whether it be “Brothel Saturday” or a special event with unique characters coming out to play, one can never predict what will happen in his alternate universe.
