I’m exploring the objects of a non-physical metaverse. Each object is a kind of phenomenon of the non-physical world. I research, pay attention and popularize what is undoubtedly a part of our life, but cannot be described or measured due to its non-material nature. If you want to enjoy the metaverse and see more images of objects click this link.
Collaboration with legendary Howard Rheingold. Based on his legendary book Smart mobs: The Next Social Revolution. A smart mob is a group whose coordination and communication abilities have been empowered by digital communication technologies. And this technology is one of the main powers that changing this world. Blockchain technology is definitely based on it.
The phenomenon was introduced by Howard Rheingold in 2002.

Buran. Genetic memory of alternate future
Artwork made in collaboration with Nastya Miro.
Art collaboration with Nastya Miro.
The only orbital launch of a Soviet spacecraft Buran (“Blizzard”) orbiter occurred on 15 November 1988 from the Baikonur Cosmodrome launch pad.
It was the first spaceplane in the world to perform an uncrewed flight, including landing in fully automatic mode.
After the first flight of a Buran spacecraft, the program was canceled due to changing of the economic system from Communism to Capitalism.

I’m paying attention to the formation of personality in the early days of its existence. Each of us has an elusive but clearly felt “I”. And also an integral part of each personality is the shell formed by the outside world. This structure can be felt especially clearly when consciousness has not yet been distorted by internal changes and the impact of the external world. In the depths of our consciousness, in the foundation of our personality, the first influence of the external world is recorded – Love. Love, which is symbolized by the lullaby, familiar to us from the first days of life, and our “I” – which is the independent center of this love.
“Formation” artwork is a glass-like ball, the inner layer of which we see through a transparent shell. In a calm state, the inner layer also has the shape of a ball. There is a second state known to us in which this inner layer is distorted under the influence of external influences (for example, as seen in the presented NFT, this is the effect of sound).
Inside the ball, there is a small ball whose surface resembles (but does not repeat) a mirror-like surface. This ball changes in size regardless of external influence, but only depending on its own actions. At a certain moment, we begin to see a form that resembles the pupil of an eye, through which an external influence also occurs, filling our inner world.
You can find the Formation object as a part of the Pangea collaboration (top, center). This NFT involved all NFT256 artists who created a portrait made out of 256 combined digital artwork. Read more about Pangea. Pangea collector Mikhael Jerlis founder of the biggest mining pool in Eastern Europe.

IT’S A FABULOUS WORLD
An admiration for the surrounding world is also an acquaintance with it. Each of us has our own world, and we are surrounded by a common one outside of time and space that we save carefully in the non-physical entity.
The huge Pyramid feels like purple, bigger than anything is floating in existence with the volumetric inscription “It’s a Fabulous World” and mirrored walls inside. A video loop demonstrates the object which you can own.
There is a documentary behind this artwork. The premiere took place in a huge pyramid of Luxor casino in Las Vegas.
