Sensorium is joining forces with Roborace, the company behind the first electric autonomous-car racing series and .ART, the world’s top-level domain created for the international art and culture community, to launch a global art competition dedicated to promoting the transition of the art world into the metaverse.
Inspired by the 24 Hours of Le Mans, The 24 Days Of L’.Art presents an opportunity for 3D artists worldwide to exhibit their talents at Roborace — a racing metaverse that combines the excitement of physical racing with artificial intelligence and augmented reality to take motorsports to the next level.
The 10 most voted artworks will be added to the AR-enhanced racing tracks of Roborace as both collectibles or obstacles used to increase the difficulty and entertainment of each race.
“This event is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for creators to embrace the metaverse, push the boundaries of their imagination and start leveraging the artistic tools that will define the future of art, like virtual and augmented reality. As the metaverse becomes an increasingly structured platform, more creators will want to become a part of it - and The 24 Days Of L’.ART is the perfect starting point for those ready to dive right in,” says Sensorium Deputy CEO, Alex Blagirev.
As explained by Wakatta’s Chief Marketing Officer, Alexander Firsov, the contest is a valuable platform for artists to gain exposure in all-digital environments, anchored by metaverse expertise and experience provided by Roborace and Sensorium. In addition, the event is also aimed at helping dispel reservations surrounding blockchain technology.
“Blockchain is having a profound impact on the way artistic pursuits are now unfolding. However, many still seem to think that the technology is hard to use or that it’s beyond access. We don’t believe that to be the case as Wakatta aims to be a fair, transparent, and intuitive blockchain that our partners can always count on. And 24 Days Of L’.ART is the right project to stand behind as we further our goal of delivering access to blockchain technology across the art world,” adds Firsov.
Interest artists can submit their works until May 31st, 2022. All details can be found here.
