Amongst our influences are the Bauhaus movement, not strictly with geometric simplicity, but in that form and function are intertwined, as are fine art, craft, and design. Particularly with digital copies, mass-production is a given for many works. Though some of our works may be unique physical objects, or limited run prints, these are merely due to the nature of the works in question. Due to environmental concerns, as well as those related to the simple fact that they are a recipt, and not art in and of themselves (if they were, Duchamp did it first and better), we are opposed to the scam of NFTs. If someone wants something non-fungible, do us or other artists a favour, and buy a physical piece.
We are also inspired by the Hacker Ethos. Art, like code is created for its own sake, and nothing is created in a vacuum. Art, and code are all built within a culture, or brought across cultures, which then adapt what has already been created, and used as a foundation to create something entirely new. The template upon which this site is built is licensed under the GPL v3.0, and as we have taken this pre-existing code and design, freely given, our ongoing changes to both code and design elements are likewise given under the terms of the GPL. In this spirit, most of the art hosted here will also be under some form of open license, most often a variant of the Creative Commons. Yes, artists need to eat, and we intend to accomplish this by selling physical artwork, accepting commissions, and when all else fails, accepting donations from those who support our work and mission.
