Rafaël Rozendaal is one of the best-known players in digital art. As early as the early 2000s, he conceived, presented, and sold works in the form of websites. In his current NFTs, he also creates references to art history, using generative blockchain technologies. Rozendaal's art materializes as immersive installations, in browser windows, as artist books, and in public spaces.
A highlight of the exhibition is the walk-through presentation of 81 Horizons (2021) in the large exhibition hall. The 81-part NFT series is presented over 1,000 square feet as an immersive video installation in which our viewing experience on screens and in browser windows is juxtaposed with contemplative strolling in an exhibition situation. Rozendaal plays with the art historical topos of the horizon line, compressing for his abstractions two monochrome color fields and a line each into a file of about 0.3 KB, which is permanently inscribed in the blockchain. By transferring the NFT series into the museum space, the public can physically experience it.
