- This is a unique still from the making of Jonathan Yeo’s inaugural NFT, Self-portrait³.
- In the Self-portrait³ NFT, Jonathan takes you on a journey around his studio to witness an imaginary artwork forming on a canvas sitting on an easel. 3D technology allowed Jonathan to see himself in a completely new light – in 3D, he can walk around himself as if looking at another person. Facilitating the im/possible, Self-portrait³ becomes a space where the audience can see Jonathan’s self-portrait as a 3D object, a 3D painting, and a time-lapse of the painting process, all in one piece. The artwork created in Jonathan’s virtual studio is an entirely imaginary thing, yet the ability to blur the lines and make something look like it is happening in the real world, in this case, Jonathan’s studio, is an exciting prospect to develop.
