Fastackl from Kanon.art, a pseudonym collective of institutional art design and crypto-native technology professionals, is at the forefront of facilitating the growth of Web3 art. They are dedicated to building enduring practices and protocols for the art of the next 100 years, working closely with artists in both the crypto-native and traditional spaces. Their platform focuses on aligning the incentives of artists and collectors, and they have garnered attention from the art community for their unique approach.
In this episode of the Edge of NFT, our Edge team sits down with Fastackl to explore how Kanon.art got started and their journey in the NFT space. Fastackl, along with Ox Animus, ventured into NFTs in December 2020 and decided to assemble a collection using Ox’s network to access top artists from the traditional art world. Despite interest from a major art institution, time constraints led them to take matters into their own hands, resulting in the launch of the k21 collection within just three weeks. Kanon.art operates as a “fight club” of curators, collaborating with artists to bring their visions to life.
Additionally, we delve into the fascinating Cai Guo-Qiang and EET Oracle Project. The EET Oracle Project is a hyper-personalized AI assistant capable of creating art on behalf of artists or supporting human creators using real-time speech and video intonations and other features. The Cai Guo-Qiang project, consisting of 12 physical artworks and NFTs, harnesses the power of the EET Oracle Project to achieve dynamic personalization.
