Ephemeral Ethernal is an NFT platform, including original works by a wide selection of contemporary artists articulating exceptionally poignant and unique creative voices. Emerging from the growing debate surrounding the materiality, perpetuity and inherent value of artworks, along with the very nature of art itself, it represents a provocation: plunging into the future and questioning the structures that support our concept and experience of modernity.
Composed exclusively of NFT-based works, Ephemeral Ethernal fully embodies the spirit of this new technology, upending the rules of digital ownership and clearing the way towards the end of ephemeral art, evolving or even elevating it into a new plain of existence, akin to that of what was once understood as the ether: weightless, transparent, frictionless, undetectable chemically or physically, and literally permeating all matter and space.
