|The Garden of Earthly Delights. Soon the work took on a life of its own on social media, particularly Instagram. I have collected photos taken and
posted online of the physical work during the various times it has been exhibited IRL.
|In Neal Stephenson's novel Snow Crash, published in 1992, status in the Metaverse is represented by the high or low-quality of one's avatar. To acknowledge the power of personal brand on our evaluation of images in today's “like economy” I have created a one to one representation between the number of likes the image received and the pixel resolution of the image, (for example an image that received 101 likes I scaled to 101 x 101 pixels). For Yami-Ichi, a 6 x 6 inch, one-of-a-kind print, will be available (each at the exact same price point) of the #gardenofemojideligths Instagram images I have cataloged.
