Art itself has endured over time due to the adaptations and transformations that it has undergone with respect to the needs that the human being of each different era has been concerned with communicating and immortalising, hence each era has had its attributes and condemnations that can be evidenced in the works, in this way art perpetuates the being and history.
Evidently the incorporation of technology has permeated art and the way in which we communicate and seek to make an impact, and while this is necessary for the subsistence of art itself, it can also bring harm to those who are creators of art. One of the biggest problems suffered by those whose area of work was limited to virtual content, as mentioned by Christos Ellinas, was the massive replica tion of works due to the collective nature of virtuality and the lack of protection for the works and their creator from this communal act.
In my personal opinion, and answering Chris's question in the video, it seems to me that Crypto Art, under the bases of NFT and blockchain, provides a solution to this problem, which leads me to believe that this art form can be perpetuated by all communities, especially by consumers and active producers of the works due to the virtues that emanate from it, as mentioned in the video: the ease of sale, the benefits acquired by the creators by protecting what would be called the copyright of their works, the exclusivity of the work itself and all that Christos mentions.
Given my conclusions after watching the video, I emphasize first of all the organization that is perceptible from the first moment you start watching and listening to the video, the planning of the content is remarkable, it highlights the didactic and explanatory way in which Chris transmits these new concepts, making the inclusion of examples that give us clarity in what he seeks to convey, the skill and brevity with which he speaks, the use of images and videos that help the understanding of all content, the way in which he seeks to involve the audience by interacting with us, the quality of the video in terms of its content and image and the humanity with which he speaks from his experience, thus managing to connect in a much more solid and appropriate way with his audience, showing himself as a sensible person who, like everyone else, has made mistakes, and from this point he invites us to make his mistakes ours too and not make them by ourselves.
I can only remember Chris' advice, confessing that I also suffer from this problem, so I appropriate this advice as my own and give it to you too:
"Start, don't wait and share it”.
