This unique partnership will use revolutionary technology to create unique collections that can be discovered and purchased exclusively on Voice.
“I’ve always been interested in and loved the idea of digital art, and the value of digital art is related to the value of physical art,” said Harriman, a photographer and cultural commentator. “And I love the idea that the non-fungible token enables digital artists to have a voice and have value in their voice.”
The residence involves the collaboration between the creators and the technologists at Voice to ensure that the platform is created as a canvas to show creativity and provide opportunity for the community.
One of these artists is Ayanfe Olarinde, a self-taught visual artist from Lagos, Nigeria, who deals with self-image, identity formation, gender constructs, mental health and more. Their collaborative work will be published on the Voice platform this fall along with over 50 other artists from around the world.
Voice’s mission is to open the door to anyone who has always wanted to buy or sell an NFT but didn’t know how. The potential of NFTs is undeniable, and Voice believes the possibility should be open to all. The Voice Beta will be released to the outside world in mid-August, and NFTs will be on sale now for adults 18 and over.
