Celestial Bodies

About

"Celestial Bodies" is the genesis artwork in a new series of NFTs created by artists Mark Amerika and Michael Theodore. Drawing upon centuries-long traditions of eroticism that extend from ancient Cycladic and Mesopotamian cultures up through Marcel Duchamp's radical transfigurations of the human body, the 1920 X 1080 animation was made in collaboration with an AI system trained on a customized dataset of imagery constructed by the artists. Sound by Chad Mossholder.
