ConfrontArt debuted their Union Square statue busts SeenInJustice in October 2021 to immortalize the icons Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, and John Lewis. In early 2022, they wanted to create a series of NFTs of the busts, for donation to several charities and non-profits, with artwork submitted by black artists, Izz Akko and another remaining anonymous. I was supplied with 3D models of the busts and developed the textures, objects, lighting, composition, and animation surrounding the busts.
Culturally conscious designs and layouts for transposition into 3D artwork. We used her art below to directly influence the objects and layout of the 3D NFT loops.
In collaboration with Optic Nerve and an artist that wanted to remain anonymous, below are the designs and layouts for 3D interpretation we used to develop the video loops.
