As a computer engineer who is passionate about art, I found generative art to be my ideal playground.
Having experienced both blockchains, I find Tezos safer, more predictable, and more dynamic.
In my opinion, we need to familiarize more women with decentralization, blockchain technology, smart contracts, and, last but not least, coding.
Ida Belle’s Top 10 (in no particular order)
Zancan’s Landscape with Carbon Capture #6527 (2022) is a gorgeous work that I love, as it is one of my first pink Zancan pieces.
(kinder)Garden, Monuments #105 (2022) by Yazid and Zancan together is a good demonstration of what these two maestros are capable of. I even designed a dress based on this one!
Speaking of gardens, how can I not add CCDDBB’s gorgeous Noisy Gardens #214 (2022)? This is one of only three tokens in this magical collection that comprise Tetris blocks. Zancan owns one of the other two.
Acequia #274 by Rich Poole and ThePaperCrane is truly spectacular and always has a special place in my heart. If I am not mistaken, it has the longest animation in the entire collection and is Poole’s own favorite. Rich has generously sent me a signed physical copy of this piece, and I plan to hang it in the living room of my new house in Montreal.
GEOMORPHISM #110 by Piter Pasma is also truly breathtaking. Piter’s magic is beyond anything I thought was achievable in generative art.
7.356 degrees #12 by Jacek Markusiewicz is another groundbreaking piece in my collection. It is also one of the few narrow vertical pieces.
Flower Arrangement #168 (2022) by ykxotkx is one of the pieces that shows what YK has achieved through his absolutely brilliant code.
Chrysalis #360 (2023) by Monotau and Arsiliath is a masterpiece, which I had been anticipating for months, having read every one of Monotau’s Twitter posts to ensure I wouldn’t miss the primary sale. As usual, I missed it anyway, but I was lucky to collect #360 and a few others on the secondary market.
Perpendicular Inhabitation #63 (2023) by Studio Yorktown is one of my most recent pieces. Bruce’s incredible art resembles where I lived for many years in China and Hong Kong.
Last but not least is DisruptedStar’s Cables and Clouds #40 (2022). It literally took my breath away.
