the first edition of THE WEEDS celebrates being in the weeds of crypto art.
so, welcome to the weeds. where innovation and creation occurred long before some capitalist came by and tried to muck it all up.
the definition of weeds is any plant that grows where you don't want it to grow.
before gardens were curated, buds nipped, trees pruned, and fruit genetically enhanced it was all just wild beauty. there were no weeds.
now, don't get me wrong. a curated garden is beautiful. pruned rose bushes are gorgeous. gords look great on porches in october. but let's not forget that creation and discovery of the plants started in the weeds and still occurs "in the weeds."
however, if someone called the dark corners of the crypto art world "the weeds," then it seems to me that this person wants to sully the beauty that exists there simply because they have no control over it.
but artists know that the weeds is where innovation and new ideas develop. then over time some capitalist discovers them, prunes them, and tries to turn them into perfectly obedient doers.
but artists are wild by nature. you can't contain an artist. just like you can't really control plants. you can only hold on to a small piece of who they were.
