Decentraland, one of the most wildly used virtual social worlds, is hosting its 3rd annual Metaverse Art Week: The World is Made of Code from August 24th - 28th! Metaverse Art Week is an event like no other in which artists display their digital art for the whole metaverse to experience. You will have the ability to immerse yourself in a world of creative digital art like never before!

“The new experiences provided in the Metaverse will enable extraordinary moments to manifest for both artists and viewers. The boundaries created between the virtual and the real world are significantly opening.  Imagination and dream states are imposing new levels of posture for the experiences created.  It seems the old can in fact be re-evaluated, re-invigorated into collaborative states which will engineer new visions.  Blaise Pascal said “All Man’s ills come from his inability to sit quietly in a room alone”.... I think the metaverse will provide those who might not be able to find solace in quiet places to become more adventurous and actually find contentment in life.  The potentials are going to be mesmerizing and valuable!” - Patricia Gagic

Since the dawn of the metaverse, many have been exploring better methods of interaction. The metaverse is a network for virtual worlds facilitated through the use of VR headsets. It is an internet-based ecosystem where users can interact, shop, game, and so much more. One of the most prominent use cases within the metaverse has been digital art in the form of non-fungible tokens (NFTs). NFTs are one-of-a-kind digital files, and the information, or metadata, that backs them is logged on a blockchain.

“Mirroring DNA in the natural world, in the virtual world, all life is made of code. Inspired by this year’s Venice Biennale, the third annual Metaverse Art Week will explore how the human spirit is hardwired to elicit an emotional response when presented with art inspired by mathematical designs present in nature, and how metaverse technology is pushing the boundaries of programmatic art and redefining what an immersive experience is.” - The Decentraland Team

From August 24th - 28th, Metaverse Art Week will provide you with an immersive experience through virtual art installations, conceptual productions, and NFT exhibits. You will not want to miss out on these inspirational exhibits and riveting virtual activities. Click here for more details.
