In this episode, we sit down with Art Blocks Curated artist James Merrill to talk all things generative art and NFTs. We begin by getting into James' background when it comes to generative art and blockchain. We discuss the history of generative art and how NFTs have furthered and advanced it. Next, we talk about how art is a representation of a culture and its times, and how generative art speaks to our time and culture. Of course, it's hard to talk the future of NFTs without talking about gaming, so we get into gamers' thoughts on NFTs and what pieces of the picture they might be missing. After that, we dive into the intersection between art and technology and what the future of generative art looks like. We end with the all to important royalties discussion, and what royalties actually mean for an artist like James to make a living. Don't sleep on this fascinating episode with an excellent artist!
