In imagining how to honour and preserve unique snapshots of my private internet life I began thinking of the subtext of internet content. Why do we search, click, like, follow and watch? I believe it is because the soul and spirit of an artist, show, song, or book can reach us at light speed and forever connect us to an essence that inspires and informs our IRL experience.

As I tuned in to Snoop Dogg’s GGN show on Youtube for interviews with French Montana and Jeff Ross, my computer crashed, instantly immortalising the Doggfather in my mind as a crypto angel, coming to save us all from digital despair.

In honour of his devoutness to the multiverse, I created this 1st ever Snoop inspired sound polyhedron NFT by accident. In mapping and organically modelling plates from 'Snoop_Lion_Screen Shot 2016-07-26 at 7.08.18 PM' I wondered “daamn” if I can only somehow code audio from Snoop Dogg’s latest Algorithm into movement. Low and behold, with 'The Birth of Kozomo Krystal' it worked.

After a technical disaster lost him a job and corrupted his computer in 2014, Special Krystal paused his 3D practice in favour of capturing and collecting rare and random encrypted images emitted from his computer thereafter. Using open-source 3D software, the artist then began transforming these moments into "Krystal's", unique 3D digital artworks on the blockchain, derived from snapshots. Each Krystal features a 3D generative work made from real-time internet glitch captures, encoded music, and open-source 3D technology.

"For each work I create an algorithm coding sound frequency from Snoop Dogg's album: Algorithm (2021) and colour variation into moving synaesthetic forms. This series features and honours legendary rapper and self-proclaimed NFT king, Snoop Dogg.”
