Flume and longtime collaborator Jonathan Zawada are living up to their Aussie legend status, with the duo offering eight NFTs exclusively for trade today via Zora. The eight visual pieces were originally exhibited in 2016 gallery shows in Sydney and Los Angeles and are available to acquire for the first time ever.
The eight 1-of-1 pieces are exclusively for trade, with interested parties given the opportunity to offer NFTs of their own creation and from their collections in exchange for the originals. Flume and Zawada will announce the final swaps Monday, 22 March.
Speaking of the project, Flume shares: “Jonathan and I put these together in 2016 for an art exhibition we did around the Skin album. They only got shown in Sydney and LA so we wanted them to see the light of day online. We wanted to swap these for other NFT’s instead of putting them up for sale. Part of our excitement on this medium was being able to put out works in new ways. It’s just an experiment and we’re keen to see what comes back.”
Zawada adds: "Originally the weapons came about from Harley and I talking about the idea of a ‘skin’ in games like Counter Strike. I’d long been fascinated with the idea of kind of inverse camouflage in video games and it was fun to explore this visually. I set about playing with their appearance and after he saw them Harley selected a few to make music for, to which I responded by animating the abstract destruction of each weapon to the music.”
