Creating phygital matter

Each of my works incorporates phygital material, a substance that I must first carefully develop. This material, which is physical information, is created using systems I designed to retrieve information and use it in my work. These are poetic clicks, made available to the public, which are at the origin of this material.

Each click contributes to the enrichment of the phygital material in the system, capturing a moment on an electronic chip.

The ‘phygital material’, the cornerstone of my work, is an innovative material merging the physical world with the digital to create a new dimension. In my artistic vision, information is considered as a form of physical matter. This essence, this phygital material, becomes the canvas on which I paint, transforming and shaping it according to my creations.

Arsen Eca, a visionary artist in the field of phygital art, has a distinct and innovative perspective on this concept. According to Arsen Eca, phygital art is not simply a fusion of the physical and digital worlds, but rather a profound reinterpretation of how these two dimensions can coexist and interact.

For Arsen Eca, phygital art is a way to explore and question our relationship with technology and reality. It considers that digital information is not a separate entity from the physical world, but an extension of it. In his work, he uses what he calls “phygital matter” to create works that deliberately blur the lines between the tangible and the intangible, the real and the virtual.

Arsen Eca uses technology not only as a tool, but also as an artistic medium in its own right. His phygital works can take a variety of forms, from interactive installations to digital sculptures, and aim to provoke reflection on how digital technologies influence our perception of the world, our communication and our identity.

“The Spinning Man” is a work produced in acrylic on canvas. At the heart of this creation is an electronic chip. Connected by radio frequency to a smart contract on the blockchain, this chip holds crucial information about “The spinning man”: his date of death.”
