Heart + Craft:

“Heart + Craft”: The Fusion of Generative Art and Personal Expression

Erick “snowfro” Calderon, the visionary founder of Art Blocks, is once again breaking new ground with “Heart + Craft,” a remarkable project that marries digital art with tangible creation. A decade ago, Calderon’s passion led him to craft 3D-printed cubes into hearts, placed in public spaces—a precursor to the generative art we know today.

Collaborating with Prohibition founder Jordan Lyall, “Heart + Craft” is set to launch on August 24 through the Prohibition NFT art platform, built on the Art Blocks Engine tech suite. Each NFT within the collection portrays a blocky heart with vibrant coloring, generated at minting via a blockchain algorithm. These NFTs, priced at 0.01 ETH (about $18), will be minted on Arbitrum, an Ethereum scaling network renowned for its cost-efficiency.

Taking cues from Calderon’s earlier project, “Chromie Squiggle,” “Heart + Craft” encapsulates vibrant gradients and personal artistic expression. Each NFT is accompanied by instructions for 3D-printing, painting, and assembling the heart, allowing collectors to bring their digital art to life. The process’s complexity varies, offering a hands-on connection to art creation.

Moreover, Calderon’s pursuit of inclusivity and engagement sets “Heart + Craft” apart. Owners can opt for pre-assembled block sets, limited editions crafted by hand and signed by Calderon, or even retail kits available at stores like Target. This unique approach emphasizes engagement over FOMO, reflecting Calderon’s intent to showcase the value of digital art beyond rarity.

“Heart + Craft” is a testament to Calderon’s dedication to innovation, inclusivity, and bridging the digital and physical art worlds. By inviting collectors to engage with art beyond the screen, Calderon’s project offers a fresh perspective on the intersection of creativity and technology.
