as few of you may have already seen, we are working on an aepp to facilitate decentralized collaborative artworks on aeternity. One real world event we did make here was our drone graffiti test in Mexico City in February, Details can be found on dronegraffiti.com and instagram.com/drone_graffiti.
The aepp and infrastructure for this project is already public at github.com/aeternity/aepp-drone-graffiti but some aspects of it are still in development and testing phases.
Within the next month we plan to make a public show-case for the aepp on the aeternity mainnet, to show the capabilities of the smart contract platform to create a unique artwork that could be painted by drones. Everyone owning aeternity tokens on mainnet will then be able to participate to bid for available space in this unique collaborative artwork.
The aepp allows for pictures to be transformed to drone flyable paths, time that drones would need to paint this in the real world is estimated and an
svg file will be uploaded to ipfs.
A reference to this artwork will be added to the drone graffiti auction smart contract on the aeternity blockchain. Each bid to this auctions includes drone-time, coordinates, reference and amount. All bids will be accepted, but bids that are paying to low to fit in the available space, will be refunded to the participant.
All facets of this process are open-source, everyone is able to participate, verify and event to automate this process due to it’s public nature. So an immutable and public verifiable decentralized artwork will be created. The process is and will be further documented in the github repository.
All of this will be user friendly and integrated as aepp in the base-aepp.
Visual Style Example
The following shows an artwork that was created in our testing sessions, to give an impression of visual style that can be achieved using this process.
I’m looking forward to your feedback and questions!
I’ll be further update you on the development process and about the public roll-out of this for everyone to participate!
