patrick tresset is a wizard. He writes code that sets robots (whom he builds from scratch) into a frenzy of sketching, often unnerving the subjects they are studying and drawing. This blend of coding, robotics and performance art only scratches the surface of one artist from Belgiums who has one foot firmly planted in where art has been and where art is going.
This journey landed him in the nft space just as he had finished adapting his robotics code to create similar works of art strictly within the confines of digital canvas.
I was excited to hear his stories and also get a view of this ever evolving community from someone who has spent much of his life creating thought provoking art for much of his life.
Patrick beleives a new market is being forged because of the introduction of NFTs in the art world that he sees living side by side, not in direct competition to, the commercial art world.
In that spirit he brought a group of artists together for a project called “a\terHEN” who’s aim is ‘introducing a new cultural practice in the art world’.
For the live stream the artist minted 80 editions of “Toy Robot and Shell on the Studio Floor” and gave them to our viewers!
We look forward to meeting you again Patrick!
-peace love and art!
