The OMEGA Code
Joshua Davis is a designer, technologist, and artist known for his algorithmic image-making and animation. “The OMEGA Code,” created in 2008, undergoes a transformative evolution, unveiling distant galaxies, bursts of light, cosmic swirls, and technical data against a backdrop of recently discovered nebulas.
Anna Carreras is a generative artist and creative coder who utilizes algorithms to craft visuals that evoke memories or create new ones. In “Ratlladís,” Carreras pays homage to Modernisme and its exquisite craftsmanship in ceramics, tiling, architecture, and stained glass.
Exploring code and art for over a decade, Landlines Art merges music and visual expression. His works, emerging from coding “mistakes,” prioritize color, texture, and fine details. “Diaphanous” showcases translucent architectural forms and exploded-view aesthetics.

Onchain Summer collections
We teamed up with Fingerprints DAO and Coinbase this summer to introduce artwork from four brilliant generative artists to millions of new collectors.
With Fractal Tapestries, Lippmann pushes on the theme of order and chaos, structure and decay, expressed through code. While on the surface we easily perceive simple shapes and patterns, each output challenges us to look once more and examine what we thought we saw.
“The question I kept coming back to was: is it art and do I care?” It was her anxiety as an artist, and specifically a web3 crypto-native gen-artist, that led Melissa Wiederrecht to experiment and question the expectations that have propelled her to worldwide success.
1,000 True Fans
1,000 True Fans is inspired by an essay by Kevin Kelly about how the internet impacts dynamics between creators and audiences. Blockchain and social media add new angles to the question: What is the size of an audience that makes an artistic practice sustainable?
