About

Several years ago, the artists DAT.XYZ began the unauthorised collection of microbiological samples by illicitly swabbing* the surface of world-famous artworks ... and then legging it.

Back in their laboratory they grow new artworks directly from these swabs - a living collection of pirated masterpieces.

‘This is a real, new kind of bio-generative art born directly from nature herself. By stealing microbiological data from the surface of major artworks and bringing it to life - we resurrect dead painters and mutate living artists - a physical bridge is created between their original artworks and these NFTs.’

!
MONET LIVES AGAIN!
KEITH HARING RESURRECTED!
NEW BANKSY FUNGUS!
JEFF KOONS’ BACTERIAL PINK BALLOONS!
ILLEGITIMATE-PATHOGENIC KAWS!
+ MANY MORE?

The growth of each artwork is captured on industrial high-resolution 8k cameras and processed into a collection of evolving video loops. These beautiful Attenborough-esque, detailed time-lapse films, bearing their original artists' name, become the NFTs (New Fungus Tokens! ;)

*Please note - no works of art were harmed in this process.

Quotes

know thyself
‘Hot take: Generative Art is the first truly great aesthetic movement of the 21st century. The pervasive myth of the heroic artist—think old King Picasso smoking in his undies on the beach—is dead. Now the algorithm reigns supreme 👑’

‘The bad artists imitate, the great artists steal.’

- Pablo Picasso

‘The first true NFT masterpiece will be an unsettling topic of discussion for generations.’

‘Presenting your creation on the basis of technological superiority makes you invisible. Instead, disregard technology and focus on your story. It's the only way to be visible.’

“I've learnt from experience that a painting isn't finished when you put down your brush – that's when it starts. The public reaction is what supplies meaning and value. Art comes alive in the arguments you have about it.”.
