Async Art is an experimental art movement born out of the question: “What does art look like when it can be programmed?” What if art could evolve over time, react to its owners, or pull data from the outside world? It’s time to find out what’s possible when modern art takes full advantage of the digital medium. Async Art uses open source code to compile and allow purchase of unique, dynamically shifting artwork that will live on the blockchain. The differentiation here from typical cryptoart is that Async.art pieces will have tokenized Layers. The entire art piece, called the Master, can change at any given time at the Layer’s owner’s discretion. 

For the first sale of an Async artwork, 90% goes to the Artist, 10% goes to commission fee. For a secondary sale (all sales made after the first sale) 89% goes to the Seller, 10% goes to the Artist, & 1% goes to commission fee.

Async 5th Auctions Results

For the Kitty Bungalow #BuyArtSaveKittens charity event, the team at Async combined forces with 34 artists in one of the biggest art collaborations to create three Async artworks to auction off for charity. Each Kitty-themed masterpiece is custom-made with special features to showcase the power of programmable art. 

Cats featured in “Pixel Story”  are able to emote and communicate with each other with certain combinations of emotes triggering special effects within the whole canvas. Check out the mini comic to get an idea of the abilities.

Artists included in this collaboration piece includes: Pxlpet, Sparrow, Breadbreaker22, MLIBTY, PX99, Metagiest, TS Moreau, DinziBR, and Cryptokitties team. This is Async and Dapper Lab’s first partnership and collaboration. The Cryptokitties team created Pepito the Mascot Layer, which was bundled with an actual Special Edition Cryptokitty. The Master went for 6.66 ETH, and the total with all Layers included was 15.51 ETH. 

MaoCity

“Big Trouble in Mao Mao City '' has cats that show off fighting moves as well as a variety of state changes. To check out all the possible combinations, try out one of our community member’s tool to preview Layer changes.
The artists involved in the street fight include: Alotta Money, Carlos Marcial, Vulon, Plouzza, Hidden Forces, Shortcut, BrucetheGoose, CryptotheGiant, Fabiello and TS Moreau. There was an epic bidding war over the “Shaolin Sphynx” Layer, spanning over the course of several days and the final winner turned out to be SwiftEagle at 3.2 ETH. The Master went for 10.1 ETH and with all Layers included it was 19.55 ETH. 

And finally  “Forgotten Cats of Fallen Leaves Forest” tugs at your heartstrings as kitties fade in and out of your memories depending on how often you come back to update them. This one has the largest amount of artists participating, 15 unique artists which include:Hackatao, Max Osiris, Ilan Katin, Serste, Primal Cypher, Matt Kane, Trippyogi, Reinhard, Daveed, Rutger van der Tas, Fabin Rasheed, Reviiser, Moxarra, Julia K. Ponsford, & Ruben Alexander.
The Master’s secret reserve price was triggered by Metavereum, and was instantly sold on Thursday for 10.1 ETH. Collectively this piece sold for a total of 17.06 ETH. 

The auctions lasted for about a week with all three artworks as well as 27 unique Layers sold. Collectively Async artists raised over $10,000 for the feral cat shelter - an amazing feat in itself! The Async team is extremely happy that so many artists have donated their time and art to help cats in need and grateful for this opportunity to participate in this fantastic virtual event.

Kitty Bungalow' s Virtual Edition

Hi Coldie! Can you tell us how did the whole project start?

I have been donating physical art to the Kitty Bungalow art show for the last few years. Last year, I brought in CryptoKitties and Crypto Kaiju who donated artworks. Following the success of these pieces in last year’s show, I was approached by KB about the virtual worlds I was creating. We decided to do an experiment and see how the charity would translate to a digital setting. From there we did an open call for entries, I curated a show including 40+ art pieces and VOX sculptures that took place in 4 parcels in CryptoVoxels.

In addition to the NFT digital art, we also had a physical art gallery. What blew us away was that we sold more than $2,000 in physical art as well! It was also the first introduction to several famous artists of the crypto art scene. I can tell you that a few of them are looking at getting into NFTs!

 

What was the scale of the event in terms of artists and other actors involved?

We had over 75 artists and builders contribute to the show. This includes Async who had 33 contributors in their 3 pieces they created specially for the event. I also had many builders contribute piece to the show include megavox sculptures that were auctioned as well. I tried to sell everything I could in the build. Might as well make as much as possible!

 

Any favorite contributions on the artistic side?

One of my favorite pieces was Matt Kane’s Excessive Force - Cat Devouring Bird after Picasso. This piece is not the usual for Matt in terms of subject matter, and seeing a different side to his art was really thrilling. Others agreed and there was a pretty good bid war going and it ended up selling for for 8.5 ETH (over $2,000) to Tennessee Jed. Take a look and get lost in the animation layers. Subtle, but SO TASTY!

Matt Kane

I was blown away by the Async collaboration pieces. 3 distinct pieces that were very well thought out and all very successful turnouts! Big thanks to their whole time for all they did. You could tell there was a lot of love coming from them to help cats and it showed in the end result.

Big Trouble in Māo Māo City

Forgotten Cats of Fallen Leaves Forest

CryptoKitties contributed 3 very rare kitties, as well as kitties for a scavenger hunt. They also contributed to one of the Async pieces. Their team was so generous and always willing to help promote and do whatever they could to be sure our event went off as well as possible. I their kindness and professionalism, mixed with creativity and care was amazing to collaborate with!

So, how did the event go in terms of support, are you satisfied with how it all went, was it challenging?

Overall, there were no issues, somehow! So many people stepped up and dontated their time and skills to make this event really shine and be as successful as it was.

It was a challenge to get in the ear of crypto collectors and other who might be interested in the show. I was blown away at how many people showed up and also the diversity of collectors.

 

I know that Nala cat was involved too, did this help stir the interest of more people beyond the crypto art scene?

Yes, Nala is a literal cat celebrity and with her she brings a very passionate fanbase. We had Nala do her first Twitch Livestream which went well and many of her fans joined in, which is probably the first time many of them experienced a crypto art show or virtual live event. We really appreciate the support of Nala’s team to allow us to have her be so much of a piece of the show. We had a beautiful sculpture of Nala created by Ogar which was auctioned.

Looking back on the whole event, I am so proud of how it turned out. To date, Kitty Bungalow has received over $15,000 in donations from this event. It far exceeds what any of us were dreaming of. The best part about it is that they always need more money to help feral cats in need in the Los Angeles area, so the extra money will always go to a good use.

Having a second event at the Citadel Art Center is also really fun and rewarding. It is interesting taking down an exhibition and putting up a new one. It keeps the vibes fresh, the art new, and I look forward to putting on the next show there. To everyone who collaborated, created, donated, and enjoyed the show, THANK YOU. It was only possible because of everyone! I love this community and we now have a wider network including Kitty Bungalow who love crypto events and will continue to be friends with us as this whole space continues to grow and evolve.

Async 4th Auctions Results

Async has released and auctioned another round of ground-breaking programmable art these recent weeks of May.

XCOPY’s second Async work, ”Doom Party”, is another important piece not only because of the COVID reference but because of the interactive possibilities between “Death’s Hand” and the rest of the Participants. The auction for the Master erupted in a three-way bidding war which ultimately was won by MOCA for 26 ETH. With the addition of the 9 Participant Layers as well as the device Layer, total sale of Doom Party was 68.9 ETH, the highest we’ve seen since launch period.

Leading up to his auction, XCOPY polled his Twitter community and asked which participant should be the next victim of his Death hand.

The new owner immediately started playing with “Death’s Hand”, a Layer that forces any of the Participants to change to their death scene, and will remain there until “Death’s Hand” changes to focus on another unlucky Participant. 

In the same weekend, Yura Miron sold his first Async piece The real secret of magic for an impressive 4.5ETH for the Master and 3.83 ETH for the Layers. 

There are at least 20 different states for each Layer, allowing for an endless amount of combinations and possibilities with this psychedelic piece. 

Last but not least, OficinasTK  sold his first Async piece Still Life with Silver Apple - 8.5 ETH for the Master, and 2.2 ETH for the “Black Circle” Layer.

A geometric, reflective Apple sits quietly in the scene as rendered sunlight alters the piece at 7am, 10am, 1pm, 4pm, 7pm and 10pm UTC every single day.  This is one of Async’s most active autonomous pieces yet, with 6 automatic changes every day.
