MovingPictures.Gallery is an artist-run digital art gallery presenting realtime media artists who create electronic art with custom software, hardware, circuits and code. The process is immediate, creating a dialogue between artist, machine and observer. MovingPictures.Gallery exists to substantiate digital media art. A cryptographic ’hash’ stamps each irreplicable audiovisual performance with its unique fingerprint; the blockchain enters the hash in a decentralized ledger, and smart contracts ensure provenance and resale royalties to artists. Emerging cryptocurrency technologies enable seamless, peer to peer transactions that are trackable, and trustworthy. As digital money matures, ethereal media art will enjoy a symbiotic growth towards the future mainstream.
