Roadmap 2.0

First, we would like to tell you again that we launched our new Roadmap 2.0 last month and the project reboot is now going on. If you haven't checked them out, please do so for more details with the link down below. We’re giving back to the community with a strong commitment and at the same time, we really hope that we’ll see more and more people getting interested in generative art and enjoying the space. That’s one of the core feelings that we have for the project.

FOREWORD

Generativemasks launched back in August of 2021. A collection stemming from Shunsuke Takawo’s daily coding sessions, a portfolio of work built up over years of daily experimentation with generative art since 2015, Generativemasks has marked its place in NFT history in 2021. Since then, we’ve been blessed with a core group of gen art enthusiasts, and are looking to become more communal moving forward.

Enter Roadmap 2.0.

◆"GMsArt2021Nov"

First of all, we're truly glad to have had the 2nd derivative art contest following on from our first one. The previous contest was called "GMsArt2021", so we took over that name and called it "GMsArt2021Nov" this time. Starting from November 1st to November 24th, we had about a month to select up to 15 finalists and their derivatives by the Generativemasks team, and 5 winners were chosen by community voting with the whole Generativemasks community joining.

As mentioned above, we decided to have up to 15 finalists this time, and all the finalists received POAPs. For the 5 winners, we presented a Generativemasks NFT as a prize.

Generativemasks × MetaTokyo

MetaTokyo
MetaTokyo

On November 18th, we've opened up a new gallery called "MetaTokyo", a global cultural city in the metaverse world. Here, Generativemasks is just not only displayed but decorated all over the walls and pillars of the building as you can see.

We, Generativemasks, are seeing the potentials of using the metaverse as a way to enjoy Generative art and creative coding. And this event has been a great first step for us as we stated in Block 2 of our roadmap.

We're pleased to announce that the script of Generativemasks has been stored fully on-chain🎉🎊🎉🎊

Generativemasks is now fully on-chain

We’ve officially launched this project, Generativemasks, on August 17th, 2021. The Generativemasks have been mainly built in a Javascript library called p5.js, and all of the 10,000 Generativemasks have been generated by the script. Actually, this script was stored in a distributed storage called IPFS, and we generated the Generativemasks dynamically on the NFT marketplace by including the cid that can be obtained from the IPFS in the NFT metadata.
