    Colin Goldberg Kneeling Icon, 2004-2022. Digital monoprint on vinyl with AR-triggered audiovisual NFT. Edition 1 of 1.

    ABOUT THIS ARTWORK

    Kneeling Icon is a digital monoprint from artist Colin Goldberg’s Metagraph series of digital drawings.  The composition was originally drawn in 2004 using vector-based graphics tools on a drawing tablet.  The work was reborn on the blockchain in 2022 as an animated audiovisual NFT. This piece combines the physical and digital aspects of the work.  When the physical work is viewed through the free Artivive AR app on a mobile device, it transforms into the animated NFT on the gallery wall. This piece was first exhibited in the exhibition Techspressionism: Digital and Beyond, which opened at Southampton Arts Center in Spring 2022.  The show was the first large-scale group exhibition of Techspressionist artworks and was curated by Goldberg, who coined the term Techspressionism in 2011.  Techspressionism was first described as a movement in WIRED in 2014. Over the course of the pandemic, Techspressionism has grown into an online community of artists working with technology from over 40 countries.  Techspressionism is defined in Wikipedia as “an artistic approach in which technology is utilized as a means to express emotional experience”. The term has been adopted by digital artists around the world as a way to describe their work.  Since the Summer of 2020, there have been over 50K posts published on Instagram using the hashtag #techspressionism.  Techspressionism was recently the topic of a Curator's Conversation between Helen Harrison, Director of the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center and Christiane Paul, Curator of Digital Art at the Whitney Museum of American Art.
