Lost Cities from the Future
The generative buildings and landscapes of “Archetype”
Archetype by Kjetil Golid was the latest successful drop of Art Blocks.
My current impression is the following: if Autoglyphs is the pioneer, Ringers the first home run, Archetype is the project that confirms on-chain gen art as the perfect genre to really capture the imagination of crypto-native people.
There are 3 “scenes” in Archetype: flats (563), corners (27), cubes (10).
Despite being the more common, flat scenes are the most intriguing
As I was going through the pieces, it felt like I was looking at remains of a futuristic city, flattened by the time.
A post-futuristic view.
