Solimán López, 2022
MITRA from Meshforming project
Meshforming consists of the co-creation of a global cosmology in collaboration between the artist and artificial intelligence. This cosmology imagines a universe full of plastic-based formations, located in a future (or present) time in which humans have colonised the entire universe through an absurd and excessive terraforming. Plastic thus becomes a materiality of which everything is made, allowing not only the life of humans, but also that of other species evolved to the environment. This cosmology is revealed in subsequent "drops" of NFTs that show a view that travels from the macro (galaxies) to the micro (bacterial cultures in plastic).
Solimán López is a Spanish artist living between France and Spain who develops his research around the connection between biotechnology, science, blockchain and digital art. He is the founder of the Harddiskmuseum, an art museum on a 2TB hard drive (first Museum in the world stored in DNA) and also creator of the Olea cryptocurrency, the first in the world stored in DNA embedded in olive oil. The artist has also developed the collection of NFTs, Introns, a new concept of 3D bio-models that represent social values extracted from the genome of the users who wear them. Solimán has exhibited in biennials, art centres, festivals, museums and galleries in more than 20 countries, including Ars Electronica, ISEA, Chronus Art Center, ZKM, Pompidou or the Brazilian Digital Art Biennial among others.
