Hashmasks is an OG collaborative art project to become an active participant in the creation of a truly unique and ever-evolving masterpiece. With over 70 global artists lending their creative genius to this groundbreaking endeavor, the Hashmasks collection is a testament to the power of collaboration and the boundless possibilities of digital art.
At the heart of this captivating project lies a simple yet profound concept: the assignment of names to each of the 16,384 distinct characters within the collection. And this is where you come in. Inspired by the digital art movement, Hashmasks allows you to contribute your personal touch to the artwork you hold by bestowing a name upon it using the Name Change Token (NCT). With each passing year, the opportunity to rename individual pieces becomes increasingly exclusive, as the emission of new NCTs gradually diminishes. One day, the art project will reach its culmination, and the names will be forever etched into its illustrious history.
Art, throughout history, has often followed a traditional pattern: the artist creates, and the consumer consumes. Leonardo da Vinci painted the Mona Lisa, Edvard Munch crafted The Scream, and Andy Warhol immortalized Marilyn Monroe. The roles were clearly defined, and the distance between the artist and the consumer remained distinct. Hashmasks shatters this paradigm, bringing the artist and the consumer together within the very fabric of the artwork itself.
By injecting an element of rarity through unique traits, Hashmasks creates a dynamic hierarchy within the collection, with each portrait acquiring its relative value. However, the true innovation lies in empowering you to determine the scarcity of each individual piece through the power of naming. Imagine clusters and themes emerging within the Hashmasks collection, forming narratives that transcend the intentions of the original artists. The final outcome of this ever-evolving artwork, preserved permanently on the Ethereum blockchain.
