The Digital Legacy of Ryan Koopmans and Alice Wexell: Exploring Abandoned Architecture and Bitcoin Art

these spaces in a way that physical documentation cannot Our process involves capturing the essence of the space through photography and then digitally manipulating the image to enhance the mood and atmosphere We carefully consider the composition lighting and overall feeling of the scene before adding our own creative touches such as introducing vegetation or altering the structure to create a sense of revival and transformation The final result is a digital masterpiece that blurs the lines between reality and digital artistry challenging viewers to question their perceptions of time memory and heritage

The incorporation of Bitcoin technology into our latest work ‘The Origin’ adds another layer of complexity and innovation to our artistic practice By inscribing our artwork onto the immutable ledger of Bitcoin we are exploring the concept of legacy and preservation in the digital age This not only ensures the permanence of our work but also raises questions about the value and authenticity of art in a rapidly changing world As pioneers in this field we are pushing the boundaries of traditional art forms and inviting audiences to rethink the way they engage with and perceive art in the digital realm

In a world where physical spaces are constantly evolving and disappearing our artwork serves as a reminder of the beauty and history that can be found in abandoned places By capturing these spaces in their decaying state and transforming them into digital masterpieces we are preserving a moment in time that may otherwise be lost to the ravages of time and modernization Our hope is that through our work we can inspire others to appreciate the beauty of impermanence and the power of art to transcend boundaries and connect us to our past present and future.
