FOUNTAIN is a new stage in conceptual art - the remix factory from Bard Ionson. The project asks ‘what is art?’; ‘who can make it?’ It is inspired by the Fluxus movement. The ‘Fountain Performance’ is for the artist and collector; an ongoing live performance of remix and rebirth of art and ideas that you can become involved in too. Fountain’s intent is to encourage everyone to make art out of everything.

For me Fountain goes to the heart of art, Cryptoart and what TrashArt principles mean to me. The ‘democratization of art’ (Jay Delay), copyright and concepts of ideas and their ownership. A place without gatekeepers dictating who can create and what they should create. Cryptoart’s (relatively) permissionless system, along with the people in it, have given me ‘permission’ and confidence to create, to re-discover the joy of creating and a venue to express how I feel and make my voice heard through art. This is such a gift!

What is art?

Life becomes more beautiful when we open our minds to what art is, and realize and appreciate that art is everywhere, it’s all around us. It’s only our preconceived ideas that prevented us from seeing this before. In a sense, we can choose this.

This idea is also where the ‘Child’ in my pseudonym, CryptoChild, originates from: to live, to love, to learn child-like; without prejudice or preconceived ideas. To experience the wonderment of life through these eyes: our breath, the world around us and the beings we share it with; fresh, new and with appreciation, with ideas and questions. We can choose this too.

‘Fountain’) and other iconic pieces like ‘God’,) celebrate one of our greatest contributions to civilization - pipes and plumbing. Ironically, as a species, our sole contribution to the planet is shit and trash.

We can accept and embrace our potential pointlessness and celebrate systems and design which funnel away our excesses (shit and trash) to make us feel advanced and civilized.

Who can make art?

Get involved. Who can? You can! Look, there’s a TrashCan and here’s a Fountain: will you join the performance?

Feel free to remix Fountain Performance 23.1 (Maybe Mario) and also Bard Ionson’s FOUNTAIN and attribute the artist.

Let the performance continue…. If you don’t know where to begin playing with an image try PHOTOMOSH - it’s magic. Try a few passes manually using this synthesizer (thank you ROBNESS) or get lucky finding something you like with a random MOSH.

Bard Ionson has created 501 (and perhaps counting) pieces of art using GAN (Generative Adversarial Network) and they are available to share, remix or resell. His process and inspiration is an interesting read.

I hope it can inspire you to create and continue the performance. Share, Remix, Reuse.

In appreciation of this project, and to further the ‘Fountain Performance,’ I look forward to promoting Bard Ionson’s art and this remix project, and hope to use any profit from sales from this remixed art to onboard a new artist into cryptoart and get them started with some KYC-free Ethereum.
