// DIGITAL COMBINES
A WIP of Digital Combines. A project I've been working on since early 2022. Digital Combines are a new genre proposed by artist and educator Claudia Hart. While visual artists have long been fusing discordant objects as a conceptual tool, Digital Combines expand on this by joining the physical, digital and the virtual in space, through a blending of traditional, new media and blockchain smart contracts. You can find out more information in this peer reviewed essay published late 2022.
