Jam Sutton Releases Augmented Reality NFT Sculptures Inspired by Ancient Statues

Entitled ‘Through Constant Decay.’

Jam Sutton is the interdisciplinary British artist best known for creating works that explore the relationship between technology and antiquity. In his boundary-pushing practice, the artist utilizes 3D scans of his subjects, augmented reality as well as 3D printing to develop sculptures that raise questions on today’s representations of the body, especially in the digital realm. Sutton is currently preparing to release a collection of augmented reality sculptures as NFTs on Nifty Gateway, made in partnership with IV Gallery.

The collection, entitled Through Constant Decay, features self-portraits of the artist as three-dimensional sculptures that draw inspiration from ancient Greek and Roman statues. “I want to create impressions of figures, casting a representation of my subject as a digital shell, cracked and imperfect from glitches during the scanning process. I’m attempting to capture the essence of existence and suspending it in digital and physical spaces.”

Each NFT in the collection comes with an AR marker which allows you to place the sculpture in your space when using the Jam Sutton Studio app. Through Constant Decay will be available on Nifty Gateway starting May 18.

Elsewhere in art, KAWS recently unveiled a hot-air balloon version of his massive KAWS:HOLIDAY Companion in the United Kingdom.
