The inaugural Binance NFT Marketplace Premium Event for Contemporary Art Auction invites leading international contemporary artists to create original NFT works for sale on this innovative new platform. The title of this event “ADAHA” is derived from the work of artist Tianzhuo Chen, and refers to the core of a fictional belief system that he created using new media and theatre performances. In stark contrast to the spiritual mode of world making in ADAHA, Crystalline Work (Arctic) by John Gerrard stands on the side of reason, establishing an immersive world within a game engine. Such dual variation between the hyperbolic religion of ADAHA and the pursuit of the actual in Gerrard’s Crystalline world runs throughout the show, with 8 distinct worlds and novel belief systems virtually situated by the 8 invited artists.

Crystalline Work (Arctic)
John Gerrard
In Crystalline Work (Arctic), a robot arm mines the physics of ice formation to produce a series of unique crystal layouts, one an hour, running on Arctic time. On summer solstice--June 21st 2021--twenty four unique solutions were produced and minted as hybrid NFTs. This series is derived from the artist's annual solar simulation of the same name. Fifty percent of artist proceeds from this project are dedicated to supporting regenerative and biological farming organisations.
