In partnership with Picture This
The Sandbox is partnering with a Swedish art-tech company Picture This, through a new VoxEdit Contest: Plurality in Voxel.
“With Picture This, we have created a global platform for world-renowned photographers, curated iconic drops and fine art gallery partners. Our aim is to continue to broaden the horizon of photography art and finding meaningful collaborations within the intersection of different art forms, blockchain and beyond. We are set out to build the bridge between the traditional fine art and crypto worlds. And our collaboration with The Sandbox team is aiming to take voxel art and photography art forms to new creative heights and a great collecting experience for the collectors on the metaverse” says Ilgi Evecan, Chief Metaverse Officer at Picture This.
‘Plurality in Voxel’ contest aims to unlock impactful collaborations in the traditional and digital art world.
“Pluralism is the position that there are not one consistent means
of approaching truths about the world, but rather many”, says Zeynep
Utku, Head of Growth at Picture This. “Often this is associated with conceptual, contextual, or cultural relativism. Hence, this concept is much in relevance to the new realm of possibilities offered within The Metaverse.”
Each participant will express their vision of plurality using The Sandbox’s VoxEdit software, with personal styles, techniques and imagination.
10 winners will be selected and will receive SAND prizes (the rewards break down is listed below). Once the 10 winners are announced, Picture This will pair each of them with a photographer that will be producing a 2D version of the VX asset created. In addition the 1st place winner will be able to create a VX asset that incorporates the 10 winning assets.
