Metaverse

$ 1,900.00

Can looking through the lens of metaverses help us perceive our ultimate reality? Are we just brains in a jar? Are we living in a simulation? What exactly is our reality? Metaverse artwork seeks to ask these fundamental questions and hopefully spark wonder in inquiring minds.

Description

Metaverse is Gwylym’s representation of what a metaverse without the interface to our reality might look like.

The underlying reality of our existence can never really be known because we use an interface between what we perceive as reality and what reality actually is. This is true for the physical world too, but is more obvious when we look deeper into metaverses.

Our brains optimize for survival and evolution of that survival instinct which allows us to adapt as a species. Imagine sending an email if you will. If we considered the underlying reality of what makes it possible to send that email we’d never actually send the email. Perceiving all of the wires and electrical signals etc. that make up that email aren’t useful to us when we’re sending an email. It is the interface of that email that makes it possible to send that email.

The underlying reality that we live in is similar to that email interface. Understanding the complexity of this underlying reality is useless for our survival and therefore can never really be truly known. When we look at these concepts in terms of metaverses it gives us an opportunity to glimpse what that underlying reality is in more concrete terms.

Are we just brains in a jar? What do you think? Is everything a simulation whether in physical reality or metaverses? This artwork seeks to ask questions rather than answer them.

90 Days Guarantee

Buying art online can be a daunting process and it is our aim to make it an easy decision to make. If for any reason you decide that you aren’t happy with the art you receive or you simply change your mind within the first 90 days, we will be happy to give you a full refund (see our returns policy for more information).

Creative Process

Bjorn works with Gwylym to decide the subject of the artwork. In some cases Bjorn takes the photo according to what they have both decided. In other case Gwylym sources existing images.

The base photo is run through one or several Artificially Intelligent Neural Networks to combine layers with other textures chosen by Gwylym. Gwylym changes the computer code in the Neural Network to create recipes of different weights and number of layers. The art is then edited in various ways by Gwylym until he is happy with his artistic vision.
