Friday Special Blend
Friday June 11th, 2021 with Susan Johnston with Dan Monafu
Beyond the hype: Dan Monafu and I chat with Artengine's Ryan Stec and Remco Vollmer about art, tech, and now NFTs..

So what's a non-fungible token, or NFT? Like other forms of cryptocurrency, it's also a digital token. But each NFT is unique, and thus can be a collectible digital asset. Dan Monafu and I speak with Remco Vollmer and Ryan Stec, the leadership team for Artengine, about NFTs and what they might mean for the art world, and what's happening on the Ottawa scene. Artengine is an Ottawa-based organization that aims to deepen the practices of artists, designers, and critics around emerging technologies for creative production, and to reflect on specific urgencies in society and the arts.
